"We must all hang together, or assuredly we shall all hang separately."
― Benjamin Franklin
The Founding Fathers risked everything in the name of a dream called America. Theirs was a difficult, violent, and honorable calling–independence, that is. At the Independence Day GORUCK Challenge, expect a history lesson as we honor their sacrifice and enjoy the benefits of freedom by living life to its fullest under rucks, shoulder to shoulder with fellow patriots touring your town all the while singing Happy Birthday to America (amongst other festivities). And good news: Sam Adams is certain to make an appearance once you have earned your patch. Happy Birthday America!
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.
