My name is Joe Burton. I am 51 and have been married to my wife for 27 years. I am the father of three sons, of which,one of them is a MARINE! I will be running the half marathon in the CNO Financial Indianapolis Monumental Marathon, Half Marathon, 5K on November 4th, which will also be my 28th wedding anniversary.
My youngest son Lance Corporal Drake Burton graduated from MCRD San Diego in May of 2016. As a father, I don't think that I could have been anymore proud of him on that day, watching him out on the parade grounds marching with his new brothers and earning his place within the most elite organization in the world. His current Military Occupation Specialty is Security Forces.
Drakes service,commitment and sacrifice to his country humbles me and makes me proud of him. I am running this fall to give back a little for his service and for the service that all Marines give everyday.
