Gold Star
The Gold Star signifies a family's pride in their loved one's sacrifice rather than the mourning of their personal loss. If you or anyone you know is a Gold Star family member and would like to register for FREE please email: Please include your information as well as a brief bio of your fallen solider. You will be asked to bring a laminated picture of your loved one to pin to your ruck. We will be honoring the fallen at the end of the event where you will also receive your completion patch. GORUCK hopes to bring Gold Star family members some knowledge of what their loved ones endured during their military training; so come prepared for a 5+ hour team building event. This will be a wonderful way to honor and remember our fallen as September 24th this year is Gold Star Mother and Family Member Day. 

This event is open to all who wish to honor Gold Star families and their lost loved ones. Non Gold Star members please follow the link to sign-up.
