77 years ago, the night before the Allies stormed the beaches of Normandy, the first 3-man Jedburgh team jumped into occupied France.
They linked up with the local resistance fighters and waged guerrilla warfare against the Nazis — sabotage, ambushes, raids under the cloak of darkness — and coordinated supply drops that would further arm the underground and draw enemy fighters away from the main Allied efforts.
To commemorate the 77th anniversary of D-Day and the Jedburgh spirit, we’ve teamed up with @goruck for the Deception Ruck. You ruck a total of 7.7 miles wherever you live, preferably not alone. You choose the weight and if you want the miles to be cumulative or consecutive. You can also choose to ruck under the cloak of darkness.
Proceeds of the Deception Ruck patch and t-shirt sales will go directly to BDF in our mission of “taking care of the ones who took care of us” aka helping our military veterans and their families through battlefield return plus transition and education programs.
