Sgt. Robert Hernandez, a black belt Marine Corps Martial Arts Program instructor with the School of Infantry West — Detachment Hawaii, hydrates in preparation for the 2010 Honolulu Marathon, Dec. 12. Hernandez and fellow Marines from Aircraft Rescue Firefighting, Marine Corps Air Station Kaneohe Bay, Hawaii, 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. "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."
