Looks like 50 teams will be in the starting line up.

This Years Teams

Recognized a few familiar faces in there.

SGM Zajkowski who won in 2007, runner up in 2009, is in it again. This is either his third or 4th comp.

I've met a few of the competitors through various places in the Army. Good hunting to all competitors!

Had the privilege of attending 2007 and'08 and seeing the teams cross the finish line. BRC is always an incredible event, highly recommend going if you can.

Went to enlisted AIT and another school with one of the Captains. Takes balls just to compete in BRC.

I see something now but I am not sure what that red thing is... First thing that came to mind was Captain America's nemesis -- the Red Skull! :D

Well, at least 1 person from each state will get to watch it. Tried also to go directly to livestream's website and access it from there, but couldn't find it.

I got lucky and kept clicking until I got in. I have an idea as to why this happened...

One AF guy (Tm 45) anyone know his background?

Just that he's assigned to RTB at Benning.

Looks like SGM Zajkowski may pull off a toofer.

Only one other person has won BRC twice. That was Sergeant Paul Scurka. That record has stood for 25 years, until this year. SGM Zajkowski equals that record this year with his previous win in 2007.

Congratulations to all the teams and competitors for completing the "Ultimate Gut Check."

1. SGM Zajkowski, Walter - MSG Turk, Eric - USASOC
2. SSG Cogle, Charles - SPC Broussard, Christopher - 75th Ranger Regiment
3. SFC Santiago, Raymond - SFC Riepe, Mason - Ranger Training Brigade
4. SFC Greenwood, William - SSG Pasciak, John - 75th Ranger Regiment
5. SSG Santo, Jason - SGT Isenberg, John - 75th Ranger Regiment
6. SFC Boesch, David - SSG Payne, Thomas - USASOC
7. 1LT Goodman, Thomas - SSG Achee, Bryan - 4th Infantry Division

BRC 2011 Complete List Final Standings

As a final note to all this, this year's standout, in my mind, would be SSG Merriken, a Ranger, who was at one time receiving 100% disability for his injuries, and competed in this years competition.


Now I don’t know about you, but I would expect that long road to be a recovery that would allow Kanaan Merriken to live a relatively normal life. The Army had medically retired him by that time. But that wasn’t the road Merriken chose. Merriken’s road to recovery included returning to active duty.

In November 2005, Ranger Kanaan Merriken, after the succesful appeal of his medical retirement, completed the RIP course for the second time (Ranger Indoctrination Program … a requirement for all candidates for duty with the 75th Ranger Regiment). He was selected as the classes’ Honor Graduate and was the leadership award winner.
He has subsequently rejoined the unit he so loves and is again a proud and serving member of the 75th Ranger Regiment.
