Pressing on with purpose: Marine firefighters hike Honolulu Marathon for second year, raise money for wounded warriors

Marines with Aircraft Rescue Firefighting, Marine Corps Air Station Kaneohe Bay, Hawaii, and the School of Infantry West — Detachment Hawaii, complete the final stretch of the 2010 Honolulu Marathon, Dec. 12. For the second year in a row, the Marines hiked the 26.3-mile marathon with boots, camouflage trousers and 65-pound packs to raise money for wounded Marines and sailors at Wounded Warrior Battalion West — Detachment Hawaii, on Marine Corps Base Hawaii. "In the end, the wounded warriors were who we were there for," said Chicago native Sgt. Fernando Camacho, a firefighter with ARFF. "Ultimately, our goal was to raise money for the wounded Marines and sailors, but it didn't matter how much we did or didn't raise — it was that we were there supporting them."
