STARKVILLE, Miss. (WTVA) - A group known as the Rucking Raiders plan to march the path of the plane that crashed in a soybean field in the Delta one year ago.
Last year, a plane carrying 15 Marines and 1 Navy Sailor crashed in Leflore County. Thirty individuals will ruck the distance of North Carolina and Leflore County to remember the victims.
This will be a 900-mile march. A team of three people march at a time for nearly eight miles before another team takes over.
This particular march is called "The Marine Raider Memorial March."
Ashley Kundrat tells WTVA she is marching for her husband who died in the plane crash. She says it's been a wonderful experience walking through Mississippi and receiving support.
"It just shows how much people around the country care and actually love our guys and our military and that's great," she said.
This march is fully funded by donations.
You can find and support the Rucking Raiders and Brothers In Arms through their various social media pages.
