Walking To Remember The Fallen Of September 11, 2001They left the Toms River Armory early in the morning and headed out under ominous skies, into sweltering heat and humidity.
They trudged through Huddy Park, then down onto Route 9 South, into Beachwood, Pine Beach, Bayville and Ocean Gate. It was tough going in camouflage and heavy combat boots.
But that did not deter Sgt. First Class Theodore Berry - a full-time National Guard recruiter - and his fellow marchers on Saturday.
"When we do these walks, it's not a recruiting event, it's a pride event," Berry said.
Members of the Blue Star Mothers of the Jersey Shore, Chapter#4 and the American Recreational Military Services (A.R.M.S.) were also there to support the walkers.
