ECWG Board Member Awarded The Explorers Club Flag

Command Sergeant Major (Retired) Eric L. Fies, FRGS MN’16 was awarded the honor of carrying The Explorers Club Flag #114 on his upcoming expedition to Kenya. Fies and his team of combat-wounded Veterans, along with former U.S. Marine and Expedition Documentarian Allan R. Smith MN’04 and Expedition Photographer Amber Fies, will join a team of Kenyan Wildlife Rangers on foot patrol through the Mara Loita Forest. Team Resolute, as they are known, will deliver new field equipment to the Rangers and assist and advise them using best practices from their considerable military experience. Smith, owner of DreamQuest Productions, is filming the expedition to produce a documentary capturing the tremendous dedication of these brave Rangers coupled with the continued selfless service these amazing Military Veterans bring to wildlife conservation efforts and a new “battlefield”. Flag #114 has been on 22 expeditions since 1944. This Flag Expedition will be in the field from 16-27 October. Follow Team Resolute’s progress on Facebook at:
