Special Tactics Memorial Ruck

Chief Master Sgt. Tony Travis and Tech. Sgt. Chris Grove, combat controllers with the 23rd Special Tactics Squadron at Hurlburt Field, Fla., walk along I-10 in Texas near mile marker 587 Oct. 6. The Airmen are participating in the the Special Tactics Memorial Ruck to raise awareness and support for the Special Operations Warrior Foundation and recognize fallen comrades of wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Six, two-man teams will complete their mission in 10 days by walking 10-15 mile legs around the clock while carrying a ruck weighing at least 50 pounds, which is traditionally used in all training marches.
