407th Soldiers Ruck the Marsjmerket Challenge
MAPLE GROVE, MN, UNITED STATES
U.S. Army Reserve Soldiers from the 407th Civil Affairs Battalion take part in a Norwegian Army physical fitness challenge the Marsjmerket. The Soldiers carry 25 pounds of equipment for 30 kilometers with the objective of finishing the march in under 4 hours and 30 minutes. Those who meet the standards will earn the Marsjmerket badge.
While the challenge is intended to test the mettle of each participant, Chaplain (Capt.) Nicolas Kmoch says the event is meant to be a spiritual journey, giving the Soldiers the chance to reflect on themselves while pushing themselves to their physical limit.

Greetings my name is Rich,
I own U.S Veterans and I am a Veteran. I am making a website to help and inform US Veterans. I have many sites I own so I am a little slow at times. For those of you that have been following me this is my final answer for this website U.S. Veterans! I will be populating and updating it over the next few months as the site grows I hope to open it up more for veterans to log into and help and inform others of their experiences by early 2021.. I hope you find something helpful here and be sure to check back for updates. I have many news sites, you will find the RSS Feeds for those sites on U.S. Veterans.
