Goruck Challenge tests Orange County crew in 12-hour special ops training

1 of 12
Goruck Challenge participants end their grueling 12-hour challenge with a dip in the ocean near the Newport Pier Saturday. The team got a taste of special operations training under the leadership of Cadre Michael Stewart, of Boise, Idaho, who trained in Air Force Special Operations and Marine Recon. The men trekked for 12 hours while carrying 36 pounds of brick in their rucksacks all while taking on challenges along the way. The team-building challenge raised money for the Green Beret Foundation, which helps the families of Green Berets.
