Grand Canyon to Grand Tetons Get Directions
Hunter Birt @

For the third year in a row, a group of Texas A&M students will ruck across country to raise funds and awareness for the families of fallen heroes. Last year they rucked the 1000 miles from Death Valley, CA to Portland, OR. This year they are continuing that journey by rucking from the Grand Canyon to the Grand Tetons.

Support them and follow along on their journey at their Facebook page and donation page linked below

SOWF has been there since day one of my bachelor's degree.

They have always made sure I got what I needed for my living expenses as well as my semester expenses. They not only have given me financial stability when I needed it the most, but also moral and emotional support. If it wasn’t for SOWF I wouldn’t be the professional teacher that I am today. For every success that I made and continue to make in my life, SOWF will be there at the top of the list for all of the thanks and recognition that they deserve for helping me carve my future.

SOWF provided me with the opportunity to be more engaged

in my studies rather than worrying about jobs and extracurricular work to pay for schooling. In addition, I was able to invest my time in leadership positions which have taught me so much as a person.

I cannot begin to express my gratitude,

knowing throughout the college admissions process, that the financial burden of college was no longer on our family. I am forever thankful for all the incredible things SOWF does for military personnel and their families. I am proud to be attending my dream school, the University of Chicago, because of all the Foundation does to honor those who have given their lives.
