At 0700 April 10th, in Aberdeen, SD, we will embark on the Bataan Memorial Death March. This will be the 79th Anniversary of the atrocities our Heroes endured for our Freedom. The March will start at 13 Stripes Supply Co./QQP parking lot with 3 levels of participation. 1 Mile Memorial March, 13 mile mini March and a 26.2 mile full March. This is not a race, we will March together, this is to Teach, Remember and Honor those Heroes that sacrificed so much for our Freedom. The March will proceed West on 6th Ave/US 12, South on Hwy 10 to the DTOM Veterans Ranch, through Warner, East on Hwy 23, North on Hwy 14 and conclude at 13 Stripes. Shuttles and drop out vehicles will be provided and a party at 13 Stripes to follow the completion. There will be food, music and the DTOM raffle drawing. We ask that all marchers carry a flag to honor these brave warriors. Tickets are $25 and will include an event t-shirt or $40 with a Hoodie, beverages and snacks at checkpoints along the way provided by various partners, a challenge coin upon completion and food from Shagin Pit at the party. We will email to verify which March you would like to be a part of and shirt/hoodie size.
