  • Flip-flops (not required) - upon completion of a GORUCK Heavy, 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.

Event Cadre

Cleve

Force Recon Marine

Iraq, Afghanistan, Africa, Asia

 

Cleve believes that it's the simple things in life that are the key to happiness. Like a little pain, misery, and suffering to help bring out the best in us. Out of the Marines, and living in New Jersey. Cleve enjoys spending time with his family, rucking around, falling from the heavens, splashing around in the water, and of course drinking the nectar of the gods, BEER.

Event Cadre

Ricky V

Army Special Forces

East San Diego,Philippines, Iraq, Afghanistan, Asia and the Pacific Rim

 

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?"
