Who We Serve
Current and former members of the 75th Ranger Regiment and graduates of the US Army Ranger School. Why? Because we deserve the time together. It is needed sacred time to champion one another. There are too many Rangers doing great things in business to not be more connected. This is an opportunity to expand existing friendships, re-connect with old Ranger buddies and to make some new ones. Make no mistake, this is a party, but also a chance to develop your network, as well as help and be helped by a very strong business network.
GallantFew’s mission is to prevent veteran isolation by connecting new veterans with hometown veteran mentors, thereby facilitating a peaceful, successful transition from military service to a civilian life filled with hope and purpose.
We do this by creating and supporting a nationwide network of successfully transitioned veterans that engage locally with new veterans with the same military background now going through transition and by motivating communities all over the nation to take responsibility for veterans returning; welcoming, connecting, and including.
We believe this will prevent veteran unemployment, homelessness and suicide.
A team of up to ten individuals will pledge to walk, run and/or ride bicycles a combined total of 565 miles in the month of February (usually 28 days). Teams may be formed from anywhere in the world and your miles can be logged from the comfort of your own home. As a collective, all participants will raise funds for GallantFew and increase awareness for veteran issues surrounding the transition from active military service to civilian life.

The Mogadishu Mile refers to a route that was run by American Rangers and Delta Force soldiers from a helicopter crash site to an appointed rally point held by the 10th Mountain Division on National Street during the Battle of Mogadishu on October 4, 1993. The Americans involved were a part of Task Force Ranger, an attempt to eradicate Somali warlord Mohamed Farrah Aidid. Originally they were supported to take cover by running alongside a convoy of humvees and armored personnel carriers, however when the convoy failed to understand the vehicles were needed for cover, they left them and the soldiers were forced to run without support and with very limited ammunition.
