Valentine's Day Massacre
"I'm a kind person, I'm kind to everyone, but if you are unkind to me, then kindness is not what you'll remember me for."
– Al Capone
Gangsters do gangster sh*t to prevent the hijacking of their whiskey shipments, and thus the Valentine’s Day Massacre was born, Cupid be damned. And yet, our love is stronger than gangster love and Cupid is welcome during GORUCK’s take on the Valentine’s Day Massacre. But only if he wants to earn his patch just like all the rest of us.
4-5 HOURS, 7-10 MILES. LIGHT = FUN ON A TEAM. AVERAGE COMPLETION RATE: 100%
