    Marine Corps Base Hawaii – Kaneohe Bay

    In front of a sea of more than 22,000 competitors, Sgt. Fernando Camacho, a firefighter with Aircraft Rescue Firefighting, Marine Corps Air Station Kaneohe Bay, Hawaii, and fellow Marines wait for the beginning of the 2010 Honolulu Marathon at its starting line, Dec. 12. For the second year in a row, the Marines, primarily from ARFF, 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. "At first, people looked at us like we were crazy," said Camacho, from Chicago. "But when they realized why were hiking — to help out those who couldn't because of the pain they had endured — the looks on their faces changed. That made it well worth it."
