R3 was proud to be a Master Technician Sponsor the Scott Dayton Memorial 5k Run / Walk on Saturday, November 18. The enormously successful event hosted by Green Flash Brewing company had over 950 participants. EOD Technicians, former Shipmates, friends, and family of EODCS Scott Dayton from across the country attended the event.
Opening ceremonies included remarks from VA Senator Bill DeSteph and VA Congressman Scott Taylor followed by the National Anthem sung by Country Music singer and former Navy EOD Technician Brian Grilli. The run commenced with an amazing F-18 Hornet flyover in the missing man formation. It closed with hugs, storytelling, laughter, tears; the kind of fellowship only found in an incredible community like Explosive Ordnance Disposal.
R3 was represented by our Virginia Beach team. Pictured left to right: Pat McLean, Rich Hastings, Dan Hurley, and Dave Mummert.
