(Revised) Security Forces members from Joint Base San Antonio are conducting a “ruck march” July 12-16. The group plans to be in Floresville Tuesday, July 12, and in Stockdale Wednesday, July 13, according to Lt. Jesse Evins of the Floresville Police Department.

According to its Facebook page, various Security Forces groups from across the country will hold their own marches as part of the Security Forces 9/11 Ruck March to Remember. The marches are being staged in memory of the Security Forces members lost during operations Enduring Freedom and Iraqi Freedom. Locally, a group will begin at Lackland Air Force Base (AFB) in San Antonio, and will meet July 16 in La Grange with a group from Barksdale AFB. The last group of marchers, who will be from Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst in New Jersey, will reach Ground Zero on Sept. 11, as indicated on the Facebook page.

U.S. Air Force Tech. Sgt. Mark Latimer said the marchers intend to reach Floresville by 7 p.m. Tuesday, July 12.

According to Susan Hodges with the Floresville Chamber of Commerce, they just passed Teddi Harllee’s office at Bus. 181 and US 181 – a 4pm arrival at the HEB Express in Floresville looks good!

The troops from Lackland were spotted just after 2pm crossing FM 775 just north of Floresville. Looks like they're making better time than originally anticipated! Welcome, "Ruck March to Remember"!
