Coast Guard remembers comrades

    USCG members and families pose for a photo after the event at Sandy Beach

    Juneau, Alaska (KINY) There was a good turnout for an annual event to honor those who have died in the line of duty.

    Juneau area Coast Guard members laced up their sneakers and met at Sandy Beach to participate in the 3rd annual Run to Remember, a 5k run or 1 mile walk, to honor those shipmates who have fallen in the line of duty on Thursday.

    Each year, thousands of people participate in road races, memorial walks, and other types of fitness events to pay tribute to the lost members of the service.

    These events honor the brave individuals who gave their lives so others may live. One of the primary ways people join in the Run To Remember efforts is through purchasing a commemorative t-shirt, bearing the names of the fallen. The shirts each cost $25 and can be purchased online.  You can contact this website for assistance, or phone (860) 535-0786
