Members of the "Tour of Duty," a group of 36 first responders from the U.S. and Australia, run through Sikeston on Monday morning as part of their 4,600 mile trek from Santa Monica, Calif., to the World Trade Center site in New York. The group plans to arrive in New York by Sept. 11, in a run to honor those first responders who died on Sept. 11. They are also raising money for several charities. For more on the Tour of Duty, go to www.tourofdutyrun.com. There is also a "Live GPS Tracking" link on the site to see their current location.
