Family members and friends of 2nd Battalion, 9th Marine Regiment, 2nd Marine Division, have been participating in the Miles to Afghanistan program since December 2011. Participants earn miles through physical activities and use this chart to convert their exercises into miles. The competition is between the battalion’s company’s family members and friends. The first company to reach 14,400 miles, the round trip distance from Camp Lejeune, N.C., to Afghanistan, wins a welcome home pizza party for the troops when then they come back.
