Mogadishu Mile
Soldiers with the 6th Ranger Training Battalion observe a moment of silence to remember the fallen from Operation Gothic Serpent Oct. 1 at Eglin Air Force Base, Fla. Battalion personnel coordinated a four-plus-mile group run called the Mogadishu Mile to honor the Operation Gothic Serpent mission Oct. 3, 1993. The events that occurred during the operation became the basis for the book and film “Black Hawk Down.” (U.S. Air Force photo/Samuel King Jr.)
