Retired Marine Hikes 145 Miles To Help His Afghan Interpreter


A retired Marine officer is embarking on a journey to raise money - and help a friend in need.

  • Robert Koenig launched the charity Ruck for Refugees after the fall of Afghanistan. His goal? Help out his former Afghan interpreter, a man Koenig says "kept me alive".
  • Koenig hiked 145 miles from Omaha to Hartington, Nebraska, raising money for Deputy Mubarak - who lives in Florida but has 33 family members who fled Afghanistan in August and are looing for a place to stay.
  • You can help by visiting RuckForRefugees.com.
