Ruck March for the 22
Organized by: Permian Basin Chivers
May 11, 2016
EVENT DATE Sep 01, 2016
Jordan Puga and Matt Seitz, Marines who served in Iraq. They have come together and decided they wanted to do a ruck march along the Appalachian Trail which is about 2100 miles in order to bring awareness to our veterans who pass every day due to self inflicted injuries. Those men need recognition and those who are depressed need a gateway to outlive the depressed state of mind. PTSD is a major problem that has overtaken the lives of many of our great military people. It causes them to think that what they are doing here, stateside is not helping our country anymore. Bringing awareness to this situation will in turn bring more aid to those who have kept this great nation free. These two Marines are very humble and not asking for much but as we Chivers like to say, hit it out of the park. They are needing a few supplies to make the trip and a few dollars to get them there. The list they supplied included a Coleman single burner stove, 2 walking poles, a 50L ruck sack, water filter system, size 10.5 Under Armor tactical hiking boots, 2-8x5 tarps, a good first aid kit, and lots of mole skin. Now I know we can get them on their way, but if we raise more money than they are needing they want it to be donated to Operation Supply Drop for backing their cause. Operation Supply Drop is a campaign started by military folks to bring joy into the lives of others who are suffering from PTSD by joining them up with civilians to play video games and to join in laughter and good times together. Operation Supply Drop is so much more than that but I feel this has gotten wordy, so if you like please look them up. So as we all know you can do. Blow this out of the water for these guys!
