On Tuesday, seven of my brother's Special Operations friends and colleagues died when their plane crashed during a training mission in Florida. For obvious reasons, this hit close to the Carney home.
The rest of the MARSOC men at Camp Lejeune are raising money to support the wives and kids left behind. I don't have much money, but I do have a pair of legs, a Facebook account, a desire to help, and a history of impulsivity. So, as of this morning, I've decided to run the NJ Marathon on Sunday, April 26 to support the effort. Please consider giving a few dollars to the "Raising Raiders" fund in honor of a few very good men.
