Family, friends among those honoring Wagner’s sacrifice

ALEXANDRIA — Rows of tiny American flags and big, bold ones proudly greeted the nearly 100 walkers who set out along an Alexandria highway Saturday morning for the second annual Greg Wagner Memorial Walk.
Thirty-nine of the walkers were brothers, nieces and nephews of the South Dakota soldier, who died in Iraq in 2006. But one didn’t have to sport one of the Day-Glo T-shirts and tennis shoes worn by most of the participants to show respect for the event and Wagner’s friends and family.
