APK 5K RUCK 2 REMEMBER

What's the RUCK 2 REMEMBER? It's the brain child of Chief Warrant Officer Will Reese who knew Andrew in Afghanistan. A group of soldiers from the 3rd Special Forces “ruck marched” 365 miles from Arlington National Cemetery to Guilford, CT over six days, through seven states. More than forty soldiers participated in this very special ruck march and twenty of these soldiers marched all the way to the Guilford Fair Grounds, in memory of U.S. Army Special Forces Capt. Andrew Pedersen-Keel.
