Veteran’s Day 5k

Veteran’s Day 5k

Joe CockrellOct 22, 2018

Come out and join us at the Virginia Beach Oceanfront on Veteran's Day weekend for the 2nd Annual Scott Dayton EOD Memorial 5k to benefit the NSO Community.  Scott was a major part of the inspiration for the founding of NSOF and it is fitting that this race continues to serve as a legacy for his family in who still resides in the Virginia Beach area.

Scott was the first American killed in action while conducting combat operations in Syria on Thanksgiving Day, 2016. The immense contribution by Scott and the many brave EOD warriors that have given their lives in defense of this nation is a sacrifice we must never forget.


This is more than a race for us, it is about bringing our community together to honor those who cannot be here with us.
