Marching For Fallen Soldiers

Posted: Updated:

Hundreds joined together in Bismarck and walked Sunday morning at exactly 9:38 A.M. to remember fallen North Dakota soldiers. They started at that specific time because that  was the moment when two Bismarck soldiers, Sergeant Travis Van Zoest and Corporal Curtis Mehrer were killed while serving in Afghanistan in 2006. Later that year, two other members of the 1-188th Ada-Sector were killed in action. Those men are Corporal Nathan Goodiron and Corporal Christopher Kleinwachter.

Joyce Mehrer, the mother of Corporal Curtis Mehrer, says, "It's not about remembering our sons so much... it is... we want them to remember all our soldiers. The ones that are serving right now. the ones that have served and the ones that have passed away and have been killed in action."

This is the 6th annual memorial road march.
