The Gold Star Families of fallen ST Airmen joined the march for the final mile, walking to a small ceremony on Hurlburt Field at the Special Tactics Training Squadron.

Twenty ST Airmen began the 812-mile trek on Oct. 4 from Lackland Air Force Base, San Antonio, Texas, relaying through five states, averaging 12.5 miles per leg.
