Army Week 2019 holds a Battle of the Bulge Ruck on June 9, 9am-12pm.
This year they're honoring the famed 87th Infantry "Acorn" Division which fought in General George S. Patton’s Third U.S. Army during World War II. The 2019 Soldier for Life honoree, Luke Gasparre, fought with this Division through the Battle of the Bulge and into Germany earning his Combat Infantry Badge and earned a Bronze Star and Purple Heart. We honor him and all of his comrades who he fought alongside with. The 5k route begins in the Palisades, on the NY/ NJ border, to recreate the harshness that the men of the 87th pushed through to help defeat the Nazis in WWII.
Directly following the Ruck, attend the reception at the Weehawken American Legion Post. Red, White & Que will cook up a storm to feed all of the ruckers and friends.
