Runners will take action today to honor fallen service members.

The Second Annual "Run for the Fallen" kicks off this morning at Fort Story.

Dozens of active duty military members, from bases throughout Virginia and other locations across the country, are participating.

Each mile of the run represents a fallen service member, and each time the group stops, they will plant a flag as a tribute to their memory.

The four-day run wraps up Sunday at Arlington National Cemetery.
