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."
