9/11
9/11
"These acts of mass murder were intended to frighten our nation into chaos and retreat. But they have failed. Our country is strong. A great people has been moved to defend a great nation."
— President George W. Bush

The terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, changed America and the lives of Americans forever. Our Cadre conduct 9/11 Commemorative events around the  country to honor and remember those we lost: the courageous First Responders  and the soldiers who fought in the Global War on Terrorism. Cadre and all willing  participants will share their 9/11 story: where were you, how did it change your  life? Never Forget.
What to Bring
  • A rucksack aka backpack (GR1 or Rucker recommended)
  • Ruck Plate = to your weight requirement
    • If you weigh >150 lbs = 30 lb. Ruck Plate (or equivalent)
    • If you weigh < 150 lbs = 20 lb. Ruck Plate (or equivalent)
  • Hydration Bladder: Source 3L recommended
  • Nalgene bottle (1L) or equivalent (electrolytes recommended)
  • Reflective Ruck Bands (or equivalent) on your ruck
  • Headlamp with extra batteries
  • One (1) Climbing Carabiner
  • Windbreaker
  • Dry Bag (or equivalent, such as a contractor bag) with a change of clothes. If you’re really cold, you’ll be really glad you have this. Be sure to bring one (1) pair of extra socks. You’ll carry this Dry Bag in your ruck.
  • Boots (worn) are recommended over sneakers, based on the support you need over all the miles and all the weight. Under no circumstances should you wear Gore-Tex or other “waterproof” boots or socks.
  • Food aka lickies and chewies. Just don’t bring the whole Thanksgiving feast, it’s only 24+ hours.
  • Photo ID and $20 cash just in case
  • As a team, you need one (1) 50 lb. team weight and one American Flag. No wheels will be attached to the team weight and it must be in compliance with Special Forces Rule #1: Always Look Cool. Use your event’s Facebook page to meet your team, organize training, and coordinate team weight details.
  • Flip-flops (not required) - upon completion of a GORUCK Heavy, it’s one of the seven great feelings in the world to take your shoes and socks off and put flip flops on. It also makes the hell-yeah-I-earned-my-patch beer taste even better.
