PHOTOS: Lakewood resident, U.S. Army Chaplain Dovid Egert does it again

Lakewood resident Dovid Egert, stationed as a Chaplain in Ford Hood, Texas, was one of nearly 400 Soldiers who participated in Fort Hood’s fourth annual Kapaun Memorial Ruck March.

The 18-mile trek was held in honor of Chaplain (Capt.) Emil Kapaun, one of nine Army chaplains to have been awarded the Medal of Honor.

Kapaun was serving with 3rd Battalion, 8th Cavalry Regiment, 1st Cavalry Division, during the Korean War, when the unit’s positions were overrun by North Korea.

Egert performed the approximately four-hour run while carrying 30 pounds of equipment on his back.
