"As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them."
– President John F. Kennedy

Veterans Day is an occasion to honor those who signed a blank check to America. Please join us along with our Veterans Day Parade leadership as we pay tribute to veterans of all generations! Join in supporting the Centennial Veterans Day Parade by attending the Opening Ceremony in Madison Square Park at 11:00 AM. As soon as the Opening Ceremony concludes the GORUCK family will execute a service project by helping the UWVC parade organizers pack up chairs. We’ll then pay our respects by rucking in the parade as one large GORUCK formation. Don’t miss out, there are only 200 slots available. If you volunteered for the service project you’ll be able to attend the after-party at Johnny Utah’s from 2:00 PM to 5:00 PM.

3 HOURS, 1.5 MILES.
