From Texas Public Radio:
Twenty airmen left Lackland Air Force Base in the early hours of Friday morning with rucksacks on their backs. It’s the start of a tribute march journey that will take them across five states and 830 miles.
They’re paying tribute to Staff Sgt. Dylan Elchin, who was killed in Afghanistan late last year, and 19 other special tactics airmen who lost their lives since the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.
