Tonight’s ruck route paid tribute to the twin towers and the victims killed in the attacks on 9/11/2001. We will never forget the 4 planes, 19 terrorists, 3 major attacks, 2,753 killed in the attacks, 37 port authority officers killed, 23 NYPD officers killed, 55 army personnel killed at the pentagon, or the 343 firefighters and paramedics killed. Nor will we forget the 1,609 people who lost a spouse that day, or the 3,051 children who lost a parent that day, or the 2,343 U.S. Troops killed in Operation Enduring Freedom.
These measly 4 miles rucked, American Flag in hand, were for them.
