40 take part in second annual March of Honor to raise funds for Base Camp Lindsey

Local News

It’s a 10-mile march to honor those who have bravely defended freedom, and about 40 people were taking part in this morning, as Base Camp Lindsey hosted the second March of Honor.

In an effort to help raise money for Base Camp Lindsey and to raise awareness about homeless veterans, each participant carried a 25-pound rucksack.

For one participant and armed forces veteran, helping veterans who are homeless is very personal to him.

“It’s great participation and it’s great to see people understand the message that there are homeless vets,” army veteran Rick Hoban said. “That those guys and ladies that gave so much and have so little are living on the street. I had a friend, my best friend in the army died on the streets homeless.”

Here is where you can volunteer for or donate to Base Camp Lindsey.
