Gunnery Sergeant Jonathan W. Gifford was born on August 11th 1977 and joined the United States Marines Corps in 1997. Jon earned the title of Reconnaissance Marine, was a member of the Corps’ Force Recon community, and later joined MARSOC as a Critical Skills Operator.
Two weeks ago, fourteen Marine Raiders began a 770 mile journey to celebrate the lives of seven fallen brothers.
Stepping off from Navarre, Florida seven two-man teams have rucked relay style across Florida, Georgia, and South Carolina before completing their mission at Stone Bay on Camp Lejeune, North Carolina.
For those interested, these Warriors are hosting a post-ruck party supporting the Brothers in Arms Foundation tonight at Bakery 105 in Wilmington, North Carolina. This is a public event and everyone is welcome. Drink tickets will be sold for $5 each, or $20 for 6. Dress attire is smart casual.
