Today’s Star Spangled Salute honors 96-year old Marine Corps Veteran  T. Fred Harvey.  Fred is a Veteran who fought in World War II at Iwo Jima and now, 4-days shy of his 97th birthday, Fred is looking to become the oldest Veteran to run the Marine Corps Marathon.  Here’s the really crazy thing, Fred has never participated in a marathon before but he said, “I’ve never been afraid of a challenge before.  I’ve traveled the world and accomplished more than I ever imagined, but it will be one of my greatest honors to cross the finish line as a proud U.S. Marine.” Good luck Fred and THANK YOU for your service.
