    FORT INDIANTOWN GAP, Pa. – Fort Indiantown Gap’s Family and Morale, Welfare and Recreation’s annual event honoring service members who made the ultimate sacrifice is open for registration at www.gapmwr.com. The event will be held on Saturday, Oct. 10 here with race starting times staggered throughout the morning.

    Categories include: A 28-mile “path to honor” route with a heavy division (35 pound minimum rucksack/backpack and uniform) and a light division (no weight requirement and no uniform), a 14-mile “hawk walk challenge” with heavy and light divisions, a 5K “run in honor” and a 1K kids run.

    Additionally, there will be ceremonies honoring the sacrifices of Vietnam veterans, as part of the Department of Defense 50th Commemoration of the Vietnam War, as well as Gold-Star families.

    New this year is a free pasta dinner being held at the Fort Indiantown Gap Area 12 picnic grove on Oct. 9 from 4-7 p.m. for all registered participants and their families.

    This is the fourth year for the community event that draws individuals from across the U.S. to honor all those who have fallen in defense of our nation.

    Also being held that day, adjacent to the March for the Fallen, is the PA Department of Military and Veteran’s Affairs Veterans Appreciation Symposium and Expo. This free event will provide information to veterans and their families about programs and services available to them.

    More information on the symposium can be found at www.vciinc.org.
