This weekend a local organization encourages you to thank a veteran for their service or take a long trek in their honor.

Trek for Troops is happening in Byron this weekend in honor of former Byron resident  and marine, Alec Catherwood.

Alec’s family and friends are gathering to walk over 100 miles “to raise money for  Dark Horse Lodge, a veteran retreat center in Tennessee started by his parents.” (WREX)

Dark Horse Lodge, aptly named after Alec’s marine unit 3/5 Dark Horse Battalion, is a retreat created for all combat veterans to enjoy rest, relaxation and recreation.
