Run for Warriors partners with several external resources during Run for Warriors as a way to showcase what is available for our veterans who might be in need of assistance. We care deeply for those who have served our nation and want to make sure everyone returning to the civilian life can heal and live a long and prosperous live without being held captive to post stress disorders.
This year we are excited to partner with:
Marine Corps League
Dodge County Veteran Service Office
Fremont Veterans Park
Disabled American Veterans Fremont Chapter
VA Medical Center
Ceremony Guest Speaker
Lieutenant Colonel Collins is the current full-time Commander of the 402nd Military Police Battalion for the Nebraska Army National Guard. In this capacity he commands mission supervision and coordination for Military Operations of all units and elements assigned or attached to the Nebraska Army National Guard. The 402nd is comprised of the Headquarters and Headquarters Detachment, the 1057th Military Police Company, and the 192nd Law and Order Detachment.
Lt Colonel Collins was born in Oscoda Township, Michigan, but currently resides in Omaha, Nebraska.
In addition to the presentation by Colonel Collins, the pre-race ceremony will include the presentation of our nation's colors with our country's anthem, playing of taps, and amazing grace on bagpipes. The ceremony will also pay respect to the memory of our fallen battle heroes, those missing and imprisoned at anytime in our nation's proud history. The table is symbolic of many traditions, which will be discussed during the ceremony. The greatest of these is the empty chair to symbolize the soldier who didn't return home.
