I get to do Hero Week.

Marine 1st Lt. Matthew R. Vandegrift was killed in Basra Iraq April 21 2008 when a bomb exploded near his vehicle. He was part of a team of Marines that trained the Iraqi military in Basra.

Memorial quote: “Though he died a true American hero, it was the way he lived his life that set him apart from the others … with loyalty, honor and civic duty.”

    Awesome work 530a and 930a crews! A great WOD to start the week off strong. Remember who we are doing the workout for, it makes it seem much less of a grandiose task in comparison to what they gave up for us.

    Happy to “get some” for Matt today and thanks to the two Marine Captains that joined us. It was an honor to workout next to two great Americans.
