It has been 13 years since September 11, 2001. In those 13 years, 150 soldiers from Washington have been killed in action. Today those soldiers were honored by those who served along side them.
"Our mileage is based off of the [people] killed in action since 9/11, there's been 150 so it's a 15.0 kilometer march," Mike Stutzke, Director of March for the Fallen.
Stutzke did one 18 month tour over seas. During his time there he lost six friends, they are the inspiration behind March for the Fallen.
"In particular, I had a friend, Jeremiah Schmunk, rescued me and some of my men in Iraq and he died while they were rescuing us," said Stutzke.
Every 130 feet of the 9.3 mile course is a picture of a fallen soldier.
For the 200 marchers who participated it's an emotional reminder.
"Many emotions and many old memories because we shared everything, from the joy to the laughter to the tears of losing fellow comrades," Ahmed Altabaqchali, former translator for the U.S. Army in Iraq.
