Though a sand storm was blowing throughout the race, more than 100 sevicemembers from across the camp showed up to run the 26-mile marathon, which was organized by Lt. Dax Thomas of the Oklahoma National Guard. "I really hope that people will remember why we fight," said Thomas. "Prior to 9/11, Oklahoma City was the spot on America's soil for the worst act of terrorism. Today we are still fighting people who want to destroy our way of life. I ran the marathon for not only all the people that were killed in Oklahoma City or on 9/11, but all servicemen and women that have given their lives for all. It was an honor to run the marathon in their name." 81st Brigade Combat Team 169243
