GREEN BAY, Wis. (WBAY) - A veteran wounded by a roadside bomb in Iraq spent years recovering, and Saturday, May 1, he’s going to walk in a marathon in the Green Bay area.

Sgt. Mark Meunier was part of a convoy in Iraq when his Humvee was hit by what he calls a “horrendous blast.” His injuries left him with a noticeable limp, and he could only walk so far before having to rest. Then he met a crossfit business owner from Green Bay who said he might be able to help.

Meunier’s Marathon starts at 5 A.M. at the veterans memorial at the Resch Center Complex outside Resch Expo in Ashwaubenon. Funds raised will go to 4th H.O.O.A.H.’s mission to support other injured veterans. To learn more about the marathon and other events to help the mission, CLICK HERE for the 4th HOOAH website.

Meunier talks about how he came this far in an interview with Jeff Alexander above.
