The airmen are taking a break, as they are running 45 minutes ahead of schedule. But what they didn’t expect was an act of kindness courtesy of the proprietor of What a Blessing Bakery and Deli. Owner Gilbert Rose took the team in and is currently feeding them donuts and other pastries.
With only five miles remaining in their 148-mile leg of the Ruck March to Remember, the airmen call it a day. They will pick back up tomorrow morning and, by noon, pass the guidon to their Langley Air Force Base comrades.
