You are amazing Rudy. I was disheartened when you got hurt but believe you will be back. Your Character is boot only positive but intriguing. I would marry you… LOL Your wife is a lucky lady… My daughter is in the military and my son has an inspiration to become either a SEAL or Green Beret. You are his favorite too. <3 Thank you for your service man.

I was totally bummed when I watched this weeks episode and saw Rudy get hurt, hard not to like all the teams but I was favoring the military boys. Hope you have a speedy recovery Rudy.

Rudy, you are awesome my friend! a warrior all the way; I have been watching the show and I love the military team.  Not that I don't have respect for the other teams but being in the military myself you can say I am bias. LOL  I hope your recovery is swift and you get better; VERY sad to see you go because you are such an integral part of the team.

Rudy, I am sorry to see that you got hurt on the way down the tree and I still think the military team is the toughest and best in the competition. Honestly all of you in this Alaska Survival Competition are about as tough as they come. After two tours in the US Army I have say that you guys are living a dream, I only wish I could do it with you without the time constraint. The two tours did a number on my body and being disabled is a definite handicap for the time constraint. 

Form one vet to all that have, are and will serve this great country BEST WISHES NOW AND ALWAYS.


I will be pulling for the Military team, but above all I wish they all get through without any serious injuries and keep living the dream.

Mr Reyes thanks for your service with FR. You and your team were the FIRST troops on the ground in BOTH wars! Some guys from SMU's might argue that point. Good luck with the contest.
