Goruck Light Challenge July – Detroit, MI

Operation Red Wings Memorial
“Remember the philosophy of the U.S. Navy SEALs: I will never quit…my Nation expects me to be physically harder and mentally stronger than my enemies. If knocked down, I will get back up, every time. I will draw on every remaining ounce of strength to protect my teammates…I am never out of the fight.”
– Marcus Luttrell, U.S. Navy SEAL and author of Lone Survivor

Commemorate the mission that resulted in the ultimate sacrifice of 19 Special Operations Forces, including U.S. Navy SEAL LT Michael Murphy, who was posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor. Participants are requested to present a brief bio, with laminated photo, on one of the service members lost during Red Wings or Red Wings II. Several of our SEAL Cadre served with the members of Operation Red Wings. Expect a history lesson and a timeline re-enactment of the mission described in Lone Survivor. 20% of each registration fee will be donated to the Navy SEAL Foundation.
