Maj. Megan M. McClung, 34, of Coupeville, Wash., died Dec. 6, 2006 when an IED exploded under the vehicle she was traveling in while supporting combat operations in Al Anbar province, Iraq.  She was the first female Marine officer killed in Iraq.

“She was a daughter, loving and kind. She was a woman, strong and beautiful… What made many admire her most of all was that she was, plain and simple, a Marine leader passionately dedicated to mission accomplishment and troop welfare.”

New Year’s Day morning?

That was a truly dedicated tribute. Teamwork, intensity, and suffering to be proud of.

It’s been a bit quiet on the blog this HW. Maybe just alot to take in, or maybe just sore hands?

Let’s start some reflections on the week(add yours to comments):
1- It was inspiring learning a bit about the lives of these outstanding women warriors.
2- It was inspiring to watch the outstanding CF women honor those outstanding women.
3- If you see the weight vest on the floor, put it on.
4- Better yet…don’t let the vest hit the floor.
5- “225 pull ups left” was a consolation.
6- Going from Burpees to Lsits can make you pass out.
7- “F@%k-ing, f%^k-edy, f^#k, f@#k” isn’t technically an appropriate response to “Are you alright?”
8- When we say, “That doesn’t look so bad on paper,” expect it to be very, very bad.
9- It’s amazing what we can do when we really, really want it.
10- Triathlon “options”…yeah, right.
11- Only CFers…what a truly awesome group of people. Happy New Year!
