A group of military veterans, law enforcement personnel, and community members marched 12 miles on Saturday to show support for—and raise awareness of—Operation Enduring Warrior and Task Force Sentinel, which extends support to military veterans and law enforcement officers who have been wounded on duty.
According to KTVZ-TV, the walk began after a brief ceremony at the State’s Fallen Law Enforcement and Fallen Firefighters Memorials at the Oregon Department of Public Safety Standards and Training and finished at the State Capitol after passing various veteran’s memorials in Salem.
Participants wore ruck sacks for the duration of the hike.
