SIlkie Hike Oceanside 2018
If you have never experienced a Silkies Hike this is one of the best ways to prevent suicide in the veteran community!!!!
These hikes are created to prevent suicide by having the veteran community gather with their fellow brother and sisters to have fun with our dark Marine humor. With 1,100 people signed up and marching 22 km to reach the ocean and swim in our silkies. Along the way we made enough noise to have people come out of their houses asking what we were doing. As a Marine broke ranks to run over and tell them our cause and cheered us on. The day was also filled with smiles and laughter as we started off as strangers until we stripped to our silkies and stormed the beach of Oceanside, CA.
