Why do we wear a Vest?
A Vest is a necessity in the military, as it provides increase levels of protection for service members, saves lives, and helps fellow service members secure and rescue a wounded or mortally wound service member, dragging them by their vest to safety in an emergency.
By wearing a weighted vest you are keeping their memory alive and letting their loved ones know that you will never forget that sacrifice and the weight their loved ones carry in their heart is heavy, the sorrow is deep and their grief does not have a cure; for its forever!
Can I Wear a Ruck?
We encourage those who want to participate to wear a vest because of what it represents but we will not condemn anyone for wanting to were a ruck.
Now Ask Yourself, Do You Have What it Takes- It time for YOU to Dig Deep, continue forward and carry them beyond their finish line, its time for you to VEST UP 4 the FALLEN!!
