Goruck Light Challenge February – Los Angeles, CA
“War is not fair. The rules of war are to win.”
– Frederick Mayer
At the high point of World War II; the point where the Third Reich’s Final Solution was in full swing, a group of Naturalized Jewish American citizens (who themselves barely escaped the Nazis) did the unthinkable. Trained as Office of Strategic Services (OSS) spies, these brave men underwent the arduous training requirements to become covert spies and struck back at the Third Reich behind enemy lines.
This event is specifically about the three brave men of Operation Greenup: Fred Mayer, Hans Wynberg Franz Weber. On February 26, 1945 they parachuted into an Austrian Glacier, infiltrated Innsbrook, and took up residence to conduct intelligence gathering and sabotage operations against the Nazis build up in Southern Germany/ Austria. This event will commemorate those three brave men who helped put an end to part of Adolf Hitler’s Final Solution.
