Losing his brother on 9/11 led veteran Joe Quinn to a charitable purpose — the coast-to-coast Old Glory Relay 

Joe Quinn, who was in his last year at West Point when his brother James was killed in the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center, served two tours in Iraq. Since 2010, as part of Team Red White and Blue, he has organized the annual Old Glory Relay, a 62-day coast to coast relay run from Seattle to Tampa for veterans. The run raises funds for veterans, particularly those with mental health issues, reports Larry McShane in the New York Daily News.

“’So many people joined the military after 9/11,’ said Quinn. ‘Wars started because of 9/11…This is the very least I can do for the men and women who do make it home.’”
