The Brownstown VFW Post 9770 9-mile Gut Check Walk/Run was held on Saturday, Sept. 19, with a total of 130 participants registered.
The walkers and runners gathered at the American Legion in Vandalia and began the trek to the Brownstown VWF Post 9770--the end of the 9-mile trek. There they were given a lunch and were joined by supporters of the event, who did not participate in the run.
A photograph of CW03 Jonathon S. Gibson, U.S. Navy pilot of the Screaming Indian 617, was on prominent display in the building, with the information that he was KIA-MIA over the Red Sea on Sept. 22, 2013.
