11-day, 830-mile ruck to Hurlburt honors fallen special tactics Airmen

Rucking from Medina Annex at Lackland Air Force Base, Texas to Hurlburt Field, Fla., 22 Special Tactics Airmen are rucking 830 miles over 12 days to pay tribute to Staff Sgt. Dylan J. Elchin who was killed in Afghanistan on Nov. 27, 2018, and in honor of the other 19 Special Tactics Airmen who have been killed in action since 9/11.

Historically, Air Force Special Tactics plans a memorial march when a member is killed in action. This is the 5th Special Tactics Memorial March since 2009 and since it originated as the “Tim Davis Memorial March.” The march was renamed to honor all fallen Special Tactics Airmen in 2011 to the “Special Tactics Memorial March.”
