Not rain, nor cold, nor wind, nor injuries will keep the Fortunate Sons from attaining their goal.
A group of 18 Marines are three weeks into a 42-week hike that will take them from Clingman’s Dome in the Great Smoky Mountains to Jockey’s Ridge State Park in the Outer Banks along the Mountains to Sea Trail to benefit the Semper Fi Fund. These Marines are participating as teams of two in a relay hike that will take them 1,000 miles across the state to help other Marines.
The Fortunate Sons is an organization of Marines who make it their mission to help their fellow Corps members. A group from Camp Lejeune formed the organization and decided to hold the benefit hike for the Semper Fi Fund, a non-profit organization for Marines and sailors attached to a Marine unit.
