- When: 01/29/18
- QIC: H-Bomb
- The PAX: Britney, Lip Sync, Geico (FNG), Guitar Hero, Jack Rabbit (R), Taco, H-Bomb (YHC)
7 PAX including 1 FNG posted at #themarathon for a Jack Around (not just with Jack Rabbit) BD. Modified a few things along the way – but it mostly entailed a few variations on the SSH totaling 110 IC SSH (220 total), Crossover Jacks, Seal Jacks, Split Jacks (tried the Oblique Jack – but could not demo) + 55 for 11’s; hence, a lot of Jack Arounds. As always, Q kicks his own ass, PAX joined the ride (merrily I must say).

TAPs for seeing Jessica out a GoRuck Light, praying the Swenden’s lives returns to a new normal. Also for the reminder at GoRuck in how we can give back to our service woman/men when they return to civilian life.
I have talked to many friends and also through my own experience in talking to friends or relatives who are Veterans about their experiences in war, and we all saw the same result “I don’t want to talk about it” or just silence. After finishing GoRuck Light on Saturday, Cadre Garret made me realize something new, by doing a GoRuck challenge, it gives the Cadre a chance to put us in just a sliver of their shoes, which they simply cannot explain to us with just words. So all our Veterans have every right to keep their experiences to themselves, but we need to give back to them and show in someway we understand and respect the sacrifices they gave for us. Only then we can show the real respect that they deserve. Aye!
