"Caring Beyond the Box"

November 10-12, 2016

The Power of One Ruck March was created to bring awareness about our deployed men and women and raise funds for our mission. They are in need of our support in many ways including food, toiletries, pillows and bedding, and cards of appreciation to remind them they are not forgotten. SPC Carnley was supported by SOS and asked to undertake this massive 83 mile march Nov 10-12 wearing a full pack, hydration system for water, eating MRE’s and living off the land as he and his men did while in the Army Infantry.

You can help by being at a pit stop location along his route signing cards of support, waving flags, cheering him on, holding signs of encouragement for he and all our heroes. This is also a much needed fundraiser for us and we ask that you donate by the mile or as a flat donation to cover shipping costs to send the care boxes overseas. We NEED your help and you CAN make a difference in many lives by donating and volunteering with SOS.

Why SPC Royce Carnley Is Doing This for SOS

power of one ruck marchMy name is Royce Carnley. I’m an Army Veteran who served with 2-16 INF Rangers out of 1st ID. Our unit deployed to Afghanistan in 2012. That’s where I was first introduced to Teresa and Support Our Soldiers (SOS). She told me all about SOS and that they were “adopting” me. Within a couple of weeks I received three boxes and was overjoyed with the taste of home inside. Each was completely stuffed so there was plenty to share with the rest of the platoon. Teresa and SOS continued to send boxes almost on a weekly basis.

Some of you may not know, but our rations were cut so much during our deployment that “hot breakfast” no longer existed. So more than half of our deployment, the food and snacks that SOS sent actually became mission essential to provide us with the calories and protein we needed. All of us were very grateful.
