Army Veteran Runs Cross Country for Fallen Soldiers

An Army veteran is honoring fallen soldiers by running across the country. Mike Ehredt will pass through Clarksville on his second Project America Run Tuesday. He’ll continue east and run through Nashville by Wednesday. His route started in Minnesota and he plans to finish in Texas. His previous run in 2010 took him from Astoria, Ore., to Rockland, Maine – more than 4,400 miles. For every mile Ehredt runs, he posts an American flag with the name, rank, age and hometown of a fallen soldier.
