Members of the military will pay tribute to the late civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr. this Monday at the 28th annual torch run and holiday observance.
The Newport Navalog reports the run will begin at 9 a.m. from Patriots Park, located at the intersection of West Main Road and Route 24.
Participants will run 8.2-miles south, while carrying the torch, down Route 114 as part of a day-long observance of the holiday.
Runners will travel through Portsmouth, Middletown and Newport, before reaching the finish line at the Thompson Middle School, where the Navy Band Northeast’s brass quintet will perform. The ceremony will be followed by a special celebration lunch at Ney Hall galley.
