Get Out and Ruck March! (S1 E11)

Soldier first is a term we throw around a lot, but are you willing to throw on a ruck and go for a walk “for fun” after the day’s training is over? For more than 3000 military members, the answer is “yes!”

These soldiers get together on weekends to hike a number of kilometres of country side, with well-filled rucksacks on their backs. They call their group Get Out and Ruck! Cpl Dan Lebel, from 33 Service Battalion, is the soldier who got the whole thing going. He’s our podcast guest this week.
