Description

Join #DoYouGiveARuck? for the 2nd year of Operation Shell Shock! FREE FOR VETERANS AND CIVILAINS!!!

Every 24 hours 17 to 22 veteran's lose their lives and the fight to veteran suicide that is mostly fueled by the effects of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. As veteran's it is our duty to fight this war back home to save our brother's and sister's lives by building awareness. We also like to honor those who are still battling PTSD and those who have lost the war to PTSD by attaching ribbons of names to our packs so that they may ruck with their brother's and sister's in spirit. Ceremonies will be held throughout the ruck as we honor the ones we lost to the war back home. 

We will start in Indian River County this year at Sebastian Inlet State Park and march to Brevard County to downtown Melbourne. 

#DYGAR? will provide meals, fall out vehicles, water, and other necessary items to complete this operation successfully. 

We highly suggest people arrange their own transportation if they do not wish to ride the bus back to the start points. No transportation will be provided for those who wish to remain for the get together after the event is over.

Minors 15 and up ARE allowed to participate UNDER THE FOLLOWING CONDITIONS. Parent, Guardian, ROTC program, or recruiter must follow in a chase vehicle. This will allow our ruckers to keep moving forward if the minor is unable to complete the entire ruck. 

After party will be held at Hop Life Brewing Company directly after the final roll call ceremony.
