The March for the Fallen is a greater community event hosted by the Pennsylvania Army National Guard Training Center at Fort Indiantown Gap to honor the memory of all that have fallen in the defense of our nation.
The March For The Fallen began in April 2012 when a group of Pennsylvania National Guard members, inspired by the Bataan Death March event in White Sands, New Mexico, organized a march to honor the fallen in Pennsylvania. The inaugural event took place at Fort Indiantown Gap, near Annville, with a satellite march in Erie, Pennsylvania. The first course took marchers on two treks to the top of Second Mountain. As the event purpose expanded and participation increased, The March For the Fallen was established as an enduring event to honor all of the fallen in service to the nation.
