NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – About two dozen soldiers and supporters marched from the Legislative Plaza in Nashville to the Wilson County Veterans Memorial in Lebanon on Friday.

It was the eighth annual Fallen Soldier’s March that covers over 32 miles.

By marching, they hope to raise awareness to the men and women who have sacrificed everything for our freedoms.

They say the support they get from the communities along the route is inspiring.

“As an Iraq veteran, I feel very welcomed, but I’ve spent a lot of time with the Vietnam veterans and older veterans and just to hear those stories and how they were treated is terrible, so doing this and just keeping the spirits high and the love high, I think it’s very important,” said Michael Burrows.

This year, the Fallen Soldiers March is raising money to help purchase service dogs for our wounded warriors.
