Early preblast This Saturday Sept 4th before The hard launch of Maides Park, at 3 am we ruck 13 miles in honor of the 13 Service members we lost just a few days ago. We will also be rucking for what happened at New Hanover High yesterday. This will be a time to come together and discuss all that has been happening and how we as men can be part of the solution. This will fit in with the Mission of the Mambas and the mission of F3 and what we are trying to do at Maides park and the unreached areas of our city. The 13 service members that died represented all that is good and right with America. They represent the virtues we all want instilled in us and our children. They represent what it takes to end the sort of violence we saw yesterday.
Lets put some weight on our shoulders and ruck for change, ruck for comradery, and ruck for all that is good and right in the world. Lets ruck and have some deeper conversations.
Meet at Empie Park and be ready to step off at 3am. We will ruck from Empie park out and back 13 miles total on the cross city trail.
Bring your sand bags. We will bring a few on the ruck and alternate who is carrying them. We will carry the extra weight as a symbol of the burdens these service members carried for us. We will wrap up in time to take the short drive to Maides Park for the kick off :hc1: below.

FNGs: True North and a visitor from Raleigh Chicken Wing
This morning 12 of us set out on a 13 mile ruck to honor the 13 service members we lost in Kabul last week.
We began the ruck with a stop at the 9/11 memorial. We shared a few words and prayed for the family members left behind on that tragic day.
Next we headed south on Independence blvd to 17th st then across college into the neighborhoods and back out to college. Then we headed north on College.
Once we got to LLP we made a stop at the veterans memorial. There I read the names of the Marines, soldier, and sailor who lost their lives in Kabul. a few of us shared a few words and then we prayed for their families.
Next we headed up college to Kerr to Randle and back to Empie Park where we had COT.
We had two FNG's one Drop Kick EH'd who we named True North and another a female Goruck GRT who drove down from Raleigh for the ruck. We named her Chicken Wing.. This women would put most all us ruckers to shame. She has a very impressive resume when it comes to rucking.
Take time this week to remember all those we have lost since 9/11. Count your blessings. We have much to be thankful for.
