Decorated combat Veterans share their experiences in a way that is open to any and all to attend. There is value in Veterans sharing stories and there is value to Americans in better understanding what some of our most elite military members face while wearing the uniform. All are better off at the end of the event.
Multiple combat Veterans of the Battle of Mogadishu will share their experiences and take-aways. Their War Stories will then transition to an overall mission brief for all the events that follow.
This Mogadishu edition of War Stories is open to all to attend and is the official kick-off for the series of GORUCK Events - THE MOG MILE - that follow.
