About this event


9/11

"These acts of mass murder were intended to frighten our nation into chaos and retreat. But they have failed. Our country is strong. A great people has been moved to defend a great nation."
— President George W. Bush

The terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, changed America and the lives of Americans forever. Our Cadre conduct 9/11 Commemorative events around the country to honor and remember those we lost: the courageous First Responders and the soldiers who fought in the Global War on Terrorism. Cadre and all willing participants will share their 9/11 story: where were you, how did it change your life? Never Forget.

5+ Hours. Lots of PT. Lots of miles. Details not forthcoming.

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.

  • Flip-flops (not required) - upon completion of a GORUCK Light, it’s one of the seven great feelings in the world to take your shoes and socks off and put flip flops on. It also makes the hell-yeah-I-earned-my-patch beer taste even better. A fresh shirt or jacket can go a long way, too.

Cadre Whisky Mike

Army Special Operations

Somalia

 

Ranger Kurth is a native Texan and calls Houston home, where he manages a sports bar downtown. Being a full time night crawler, single & no kids, allows him plenty of time to be creative with his GORUCK event planning. So expect some old school Ranger Rucking.
