INSPIRING STORIES OF SERVICE
If there is a nobler calling than to serve others - your loved ones, your community, our nation - we’ve not yet found it, nor do we expect to. Service First stories draw upon our roots in Special Forces and feature those serving all across America — not for personal gain and least of all for profit — instead, because they heard the call to service, and they answered it. #ServiceFirst
SERVICE FIRST STORY 002: SWAT
More training leads to more confidence. More confidence leads to a greater likelihood for non-violent outcomes. This is true in war as a Special Forces Soldier. It’s true as a Law Enforcement Officer. And we at GORUCK want to use our experiences for good.

Ingress: Operation Clear Field
Niantic, the makers of Pokémon GO and Ingress, have partnered with GORUCK to bring you Operation Clear Field, a service-themed scavenger hunt – in 120 cities all across the United States this Summer of 2017. All registration fees will be donated to the National Park Foundation, the official charitable partner of the National Park Service.
Those who believe America’s best days lie behind us aren’t looking in the same places we are. If you know someone we should feature as a Service First story, let us know.
