Air Force special operator honoring fallen comrades
‘Ruck walk’ to raise money for scholarships, other help for families
STERLING – For Sgt. Adam Tarbill of Sterling and 17 other Air Force special operators, walking 450 miles wasn’t enough to honor five fallen members of their command unit.
So the Air Commando Ruckers, as they call themselves, are making the hike with 50-pound rucksacks – a backpack with a metal frame that holds gear.
“We’re carrying the rucksacks to honor them because anyone can walk, but it takes somebody special to be able to walk with 50 pounds on their back for 450 miles,” said Tarbill, 26.
