Captain John Hallett was one of more than 2,000 American military personnel killed in Afghanistan since 2001 - including 41 from his unit alone.

Mrs Hallett and other military wives affected by the deaths in the unit started a running club near Joint Base Lewis-McChord in Washington state.

She and her teammates from wear blue: run to remember run to honour those who have died and to help create a system of support and encouragement.
