UPDATED---The Marine Raider Memorial March

Feb 11, 2016
The Marine Raider Memorial March is a ruck march beginning in Navarre, FL on Friday, March 11 and ending 770 miles away in Stone Bay, NC in honor of fallen Marine Raiders.

Last year, a UH-60 Black Hawk helicopter crashed into the water southwest of Eglin Air Force Base, seven elite Special Operations Marines and four Louisiana National Guardsmen were lost.  

Today, ECAR contributed $5,000 to their cause, Brothers In Arms Foundation, now we are asking our members to show up and show support along their route.

“The primary planning consideration for selecting this route in particular is to signify bringing our brothers who perished in the helicopter crash on March 10, 2015 back home. The route specifically goes through certain significant locations such as Panama City, FL where the Marine Combatant Diver Course is held, and also Beaufort, SC where Marine Corps Recruit Depot Parris Island is located.”

 

The Community and Military Outreach Committee is organizing designated areas for ECAR members to get together to cheer on and support.
