Brian Johnson's 2013 MCM Team Travis and Brendan Fundraiser

THE STORY:

This October, I'll be running my first marathon. I took on the challenge not only for personal accomplishment, but also to honor 1st LT Travis Manion, USMC and LT Brendan Looney, USN, best friends who both paid the ultimate sacrifice.

Brendan was a classmate of mine at Naval Intelligence Officer School in 2004-05. Despite Brendan's desire to be a Navy SEAL, color blindness forced him to service select Intelligence upon graduation in 2004. Refusing to give up on his goal, he persevered and obtained a waiver for transfer into the SEAL community. While completing the infamously challenging Navy SEAL training in Coronado, CA, his Naval Academy roommate and best friend, Travis, was killed in Iraq.

Three years later, in 2010, while I was on deployment, I learned that Brendan was tragically killed in a helicopter accident in Afghanistan. Travis and Brendan are now buried, side by side, brothers in arms, in Arlington National Cemetery.

I greatly appreciate any donation you can make to the Team Travis and Brendan Foundation (http://www.travismanion.org/team-travis-brendan/), which supports wounded warriors and families of loved ones who lost their lives serving our country. I think about Brendan's sacrifice a lot while I've been training for this marathon, and with your support, look forward to running 26.2 miles to honor Brendan, Travis and the thousands of other service members who paid with their lives so that I can enjoy mine.
