The Story Behind this Event:
Following the devastating murders of Dallas and Baton Rouge police officers in the summer of 2016, Ryan Armstrong, President of Tucson Jeeps, and Gabe Spurling, President of the DM Military Jeepers, wanted to rally the community together and show their support of Tucson’s local law enforcement. Knowing their club members are large supporters of law enforcement, Ryan and Gabe, along with a small committee, planned and arranged the first BACK THE BLUE event in 2016 in a matter of weeks. The event drew incredible support from the Jeep community as well as the entire southern Arizona population.
