About this event


PUBLIC CUSTOM D-DAY OVERLORD TOUGH

Join GORUCK Nation for the first ever D-DAY OVERLORD Historical Tough Event. Participants will begin the Tough event in NYC and then quickly board the SEASTREAK ferry to cross the "English Channel" towards the landing beaches for the invasion of Sandy Hook. The team will land on the beaches at aproximately the same time as the D-Day invasion and will have visual and physical access to the historical landmarks, fort, gun emplacements, and bunkers that are available at Sandy Hook. Once the beaches have been secured the GRTs will return to NYC for ENDEX.

Fearing he would “miss the war,” Chris dropped out of the Nation’s oldest private military college, joined the Army, and was awarded the Green Beret. Known on his teams as either Norwich or Boy Scout, the tenants of each are captured in ink on his back. Now separated from Group he tries to impart those lessons learned to his small town police department. Chris is happily married to a remarkable woman and enjoys raising a daughter with a balance of glitter and grit.
