RIVERSIDE: 4th Annual Veteran Suicide Awareness Project Ruck March

On Sunday night, May 26, 2019, over 120 Veterans, Friends and Family gathered at American Legion Post 328 in the City of Norco as they set out on their 4th annual Memorial Day Ruck March. The 22 mile ruck march was to raise awareness of suicide among Veterans. Each participant wore a back pack weighing 22 lbs and carried a flag with the photo of a service member who lost their life to suicide. The number 22 symbolizes the number of Veterans who commit suicide each and every day. The march started around 10:00pm Sunday night and ended around 7:30am Monday morning at Riverside National Cemetery.
