SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) -

The 2nd of the 108th Cavalry National Guard in Shreveport is remembering those we lost in the September 11th terrorist attacks with a "Run to Remember."

The local national guard soldiers are lacing up their gym shoes for a 5k run through Shreveport in hopes of building a better relationship with the community and remembering those lost in the 9/11 attacks. 

"I felt like the whole nation was being attacked," says SFC. Jacob Hogue. 

Hogue was one of the men in the battalion deployed to Iraq after 9/11. 

The 2nd of the 108th Cavalry deployed twice to Iraq, and lost 16 soldiers in the war.

"Each time it's a unique time, it's kind of sad, but it let's us know why we are there serving, to honor those guys as well," says Capt. Ladarrell Willis. 

Willis and the other soldiers say the memory of these soldiers will not be lost. 

This Sunday, September 8th, the battalion is hosting the "Run to Remember". The 5k will begin at the Louisiana National Guard Armory on Stoner Avenue. 

Registration is still open for this event. Click here for the registration information
