Fallen Soldiers March going strong

The Fallen Soldiers March is still going strong, says the organization’s president.

Jim Retzke, president of the Fallen Soldiers March nonprofit organization, said recent confusion surrounding the discontinuation of the Nine-Mile March led many community members to believe the Fallen Soldiers March was ending as well.

That’s not the case, said Retzke.

“The Fallen Soldiers March is an active nonprofit organization that is alive and thriving,” said Retzke.

In fact, the second annual Motorcycle Poker and Bug Run will be Saturday at Snow White Drive-In to benefit the Fallen Soldiers March.

Additionally, the organization will hold the Tennessee Four Points of the Compass March, which are 30-mile marches, on Veterans Day.

Retzke said the Fallen Soldiers March strives to honor soldiers’ sacrifices by inspiring patriotic acts of kindness and conduct.  

“Our vision is to revive and inspire patriotism across America by teaching it by example to our children,” said Retzke. “The organization remains devoted to developing a national presence to meet the demand for service dogs for wounded veterans.”
