A Special Veterans Day Addition—with Retired Army Maj. Lillian Pfluke
In spirit of our partnership with US Military Endurance Sports (USMES) and Veterans Day, we’re honoring the athletes dedicated to our country and to fitness. For this week’s blog, we chatted with retired Army Maj. Lillian Pfluke. She’s one of the first women to enter West Point following President Gerald Ford’s signing of a 1975 bill requiring women’s admission to US service academies. Fortunately for Pfluke, it was her senior year of high school when West Point Academy began recruiting for its first class to include women— though Pfluke’s journey and the challenges she would take on had nothing to do with good timing and everything to do with her sharp mind, strong drive and tenacity.One of the organizations Rudy Project sponsors is US Military Endurance Sports, a triathlon, and cycling team, with the mission of promoting endurance sports as part of a healthy lifestyle for active and veteran members of the United States Armed Forces. In honor of Veteran’s Day, we took a look at two team members who are making a difference in their lives through cycling and triathlon.
