My name is Ernie Andrus. I am a World War II Navy Veteran. I turned 90 in August, 2013. I put my foot in the Pacific Ocean near San Diego, California on October 7, 2013 and reached the Atlantic Ocean, Saint Simons Island, Georgia on August 20, 2016. (one day after my 93rd birthday}. March 16, 2019 at the age of 95 I started running the same course in reverse. I finished the first run in 999 hours, 32 minutes and I second. I'm running shorter legs now.

This feat is being undertaken to raise money for the LST 325 Ship Memorial. The LST 325 is a World War II era ship used to land equipment and troops on hostel shores. I was one of the crew that brought the ship back from the Isle. of Crete, Greece to the U.S. in 2000/2001, as aired on the History Chanel. (The Return of LST 325). One thousand fifty one LST’s were built during World War II. The 325 is the only one left that is restored and operational. My dream is to take the ship back to Normandy for a D-Day Memorial. I didn’t raise near enough money on my first run so I’m trying again.
