"As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them."
– President John F. Kennedy
Veterans Day is the occasion to honor those who signed a blank check to America. The action to the words “Thank You for your Service” is rucking around your city, learning about Veterans, and performing a Service Action in your community. Cadre and Ruckers are expected to bring a picture and bio of someone who served. Cadre will provide the opportunity for you to tell their story and honor those who have served.
Pain is the theme of all GORUCK Challenges. Our Special Forces Cadres will ensure it’s pain with purpose by pushing individuals out of their comfort zones and building each class into a team. Train hard and show up ready. It’s worth it.
Fagan grew up in Upstate SC and retired there in 2004 after 20 great years in the Special Forces. He has been teaching High School JROTC since retirement. Started doing GORUCK events and OCRs in 2012 after 8 years of rugby. He still enjoys the outdoors, humping a ruck, and getting muddy with any obstacle course race.
