Memorial ruck march
U.S. Airmen with the 320th Special Tactics Squadron and the 31st Rescue Squadron conduct a memorial ruck march at Kadena Air Base, Japan, Oct. 25, 2019. The march was in honor of pararescueman Tech. Sgts. Peter Kraines and Sean Barnes, who both died after sustaining injuries during training incidents in 2014 and 2019. Airmen carried simulated patient litters, water cans, and over 1,000 pounds of other equipment across five miles. Memorial marches such as this serve as a symbolic gesture of remembrance and camaraderie among U.S. military service members who have lost friends and family in the line of duty.
