SAN DIEGO - Marines with 1st Reconnaissance Battalion run the last six miles of a 1,500 mile run in honor of retired recon Marine, Sam Leonard, in San Diego April 29, 2016. In fall 2014, at the age of 73, Sam set out to walk across the country to raise funds for the Travis Manion Foundation, which supports veterans and families of the fallen. He began in Florida but was forced to stop in Houston when he was diagnosed with stage 4 stomach cancer. He sadly passed away four months later. Albie Masland, the TMF west coast veteran service manager reached out to his good friends and TMF ambassadors Nick Biase and Matt Peace, to see if they wanted to help honor Sam by completing the last 1,500 miles of his journey and raise money for the TMF on his behalf. They finished the trek in 30 days at the USS Midway and on the anniversary of Sam’s death. (U.S. Marine Corps photo by Sgt. Anna Albrecht/ Released)

SAN DIEGO – Marines with 1st Reconnaissance Battalion honor the colors after running the last leg of a 1,500 mile run that members of the Travis Manion Foundation completed at the USS Midway in San Diego April 29, 2016. The run was in honor of Sam Leonard, who set out to walk across the country at age 73 to raise funds for the TMF, which supports veterans and families of the fallen and is named after a fallen recon Marine. Sam began in Florida but was forced to stop in Houston when he was diagnosed with stage 4 stomach cancer. He sadly passes away four months later. The three men with TMF decided to pick up where he left off and finish the last 1,500 mile of his trek in his honor. Cpl. Zachary Morgan, a reconnaissance Marine with 1st Recon Bn., ran the last six miles with the three men on this trek. “It feels good to be a part of this run because I know if I was in their shoes, it would mean a lot to see support from people,” said Morgan. “It really opens your eyes seeing people do these kinds of things as to what’s possible for you and what you can do in the future if you set your mind to it, it’s very inspiring.” (U.S. Marine corps photo by Sgt.
