Beirut Memorial Ruck

July 1, 2020

The 2nd Annual Memorial Ruck will also be held on October 24th. It will start at the Beirut Memorial at a time to be determined, travel along the greenway to Camp LeJeune’s Main Gate and back to our Memorial. This route parallels the original memorial trees originally planted in honor of the fallen. The ruck is 10.23 miles, representing the month and day of the bombing.
The BVA is EXTREMELY proud to announce the FIRST recipients of our Scholarship. We are very proud of all the applicants, and the Board unanimously decided we would award THREE scholarships this first year.

These are strange times… and none of us need to be told to Remember our Brothers.  It’s Memorial Day Weekend, a time for our Country to remember… we Remember every day.  And always Remember their Families…

Do what you can, do what you want, I know our Brothers and Sisters will always Remember…
