Sunshines’s Mole skin: it’s hard to believe that I’ve been participating, EHing, and forging 43 feet for over 5 years. It’s so great to see all of the old faces, all of the new faces, and the transformation in so many HIMs. The simplicity is the special sauce!



The Q was handed off to One Call, our region’s 1st Nant’an.


As many of you know, several of us did 2 D-Day GORUCK events last week – on the 77th anniversary of D-Day – June 6, 1944.

Of the hundreds of thousands of men who fought to liberate Normandy, sixteen soldiers were awarded the Medal of Honor for their actions during the campaign that began on D-Day

– nine of those were awarded posthumously.  This portion of your workout will honor these men.  

I greatly encourage you to read about them.

Took a moment to thank our OG’s that were present. 

Thanks given to One Call for his dedication throughout the entire time F3GrandStrand has been changing men’s lives for the better and especially during his time as the original Nant’an. Thanks given to Sunshine for his dedication and time as Nant’an. And finally thanks for his belief in me to step into these big shoes that laid the 43 feet before me.
