100% Irish for a Day in Kuwait

Back in January, SSG Rene Herrera with the Minnesota National Guard contacted TCM about his desire to participate in our 100% Irish for a Day TC 10 Mile race on March 10. There was just one small problem: He is currently stationed in Kuwait and wouldn’t be back home for a few months. Not easily deterred, SSG Herrera decided he would run the 10 mile race on March 10 in Kuwait and even recruited a few National Guard friends to do it with him. Here they are post-race, Irish kilt and all!





We wish them a safe trip home to the States, and thank them and all of our men and women in uniform for their service!
