"It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died.
Rather we should thank God that such men lived."
–General George S. Patton
Memorial Day is an opportunity to ruck for those who have served to preserve our freedom and paid the ultimate sacrifice...America’s Fallen. We build bridges between the civilian and military worlds at GORUCK, and Cadre and Ruckers alike are expected to bring a photo and a story of someone who lost their life during their service to our country. Never Forget.
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.
Ricky V comes from a family of warriors and patriots, his brother is a Special Forces Team Sergeant, his son is Airborne Infantry destined to be SF and his Company Sergeant Major is married to his cousin. Ricky spends his free time seeking out the perfect wave and eating ramen during Temporary Duty in order to buy surfboards with his per-diem. Next time you see him ask yourself, "Would you rather have $1,000,000 or his head full of nickels?"
