    Corporal Christian Brown a former squad leader with 1st Battalion, 6th Marine Regiment, looks onto his supporters during the Cost of Freedom Poker Run in New Bern, N.C. Aug. 24, 2013. “This event is (for) Christian Brown, to help him achieve his goals, his life aspirations, his new home and to get it the way he wants it and the way he needs it,” said Sgt. Maj. Larry J. Harrington, the Motor Transport Squadron 1 sergeant major aboard Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point. The poker run consisted of motorcycle riders traveling to five checkpoints. At each location the riders received a playing card, and whoever had the highest poker hand at the end of the route won. Brown, who lost both of his legs while serving as a squad leader with 1st Battalion, 6th Marine Regiment during Operation Enduring Freedom, was awarded the Silver Star Medal May 3, 2013.
