81 Miles for the Heroes of Fallujah


Miami, FL – August 15, 2013 – This Labor Day weekend, while many enjoy the summer sun and BBQ with family and friends, the Marines of Gozump will hike 81 miles, from West Palm Beach to Miami, FL, in honor of those who sacrificed their lives during the Battle of Fallujah in 2004.

The Gozump team will be carrying with them an American flag stained with the blood of those who fought in one of the most violent battles since Vietnam. The flag was handed over to Major Charleston Malkemus, founder and CEO of Gozump, when the Marine who was carrying it was killed in action.

“Many American warriors carry personal U.S. flags into battle as a source of inspiration and courage,” said Malkemus, now an officer in the Marine Corps Reserves. “When a Marine dies their flag is often handed over to another Marine as a symbolic gesture to keep up the fight and carry on their spirit.”

Malkemus said he has the flag proudly displayed in the company office as a reminder of their commitment to uphold the expectations of their brothers in arms. Gozump champion’s military families across the nation to ensure they achieve the American dream of homeownership, helping them to find, finance, offer, insure and close on their new home, the company said.

“I fought with men who sacrificed their lives believing in an America with hope and promise, one that represented freedom,” said Malkemus. “We as Americans have been given an opportunity to do something great and we walk to ensure that opportunity, which has been paid in blood, is not squandered.”

The Gozump team will hike for three days, spanning a distance greater than three marathons, beginning at CityPlace in West Palm Beach on Aug. 31. The hike will conclude in downtown Miami on Sept. 2.

Gozump urges Americans, especially those who’ve served, to join them on the hike. Media and participants will be able to receive updates on their progress by following Gozump on their Facebook page at facebook.com/Gozump or on Twitter at twitter.com/Gozump.

“Think of all the men and women that have entrusted you to carry on their flag,” said Malkemus. “Get out and join us, even if only for a block or two.”

Please permit me to use this medium to assist those in need of financial help.
I want to recommend a reliable lender called Lee Cook who lent me 50k without stress. He's the CEO of OASIS FINANCIAL CONSULTANTS. If not for him my son would've died of meningitis few years ago. After sometime i was able to payback the $50k loan and reapplied for 300k loan of which i was granted. Today I make up to USD10,000 in a month by going into a private business. Someone was good to me by sharing their email link with me, so now i am hoping i could help someone else out there by sharing it.
If you're in need of any loan and rest assured you can pay back; you can reach them at: (oasisconsultant at consultant dot com) or (contact at theoasisconsultants dot com)
Try it and you could share it with someone in financial need also!
