151111 - Veteran's Day

Veteran's Day is a day to reflect on the service of citizens in the defense of our country. As we start sending people back to the middle east, it's important to recognize not only the sacrifices these folks have made and are making, but also the sacrifices that their loved ones, family and friends make as their soldier, airman, sailor and Marine go into harm's way. 
It's also important to recognize the struggles that many veterans go through culminating in the statistic that 22 veterans commit suicide every day. If you know a veteran, give them a call, a visit or a high five. Let them know that we all still care. 
On our current roster of athletes we have a number of veterans:
Ashley G. - US Air Force
Chris N. - US Air Force
Kelly N. - US Army
Max B. - US Army
Stephen P. - US Marine Corps
Shaun M. - US Marine Corps
Jon H. - US Marine Corps
and currently serving:
Sara M. - US Army
Evin F. - US Army
Ken H. - US Army
Cory C. - US Air Force

The gym is closed on Veteran's Day, but the workout of the day is a doozie:
WOD
For time:
100 burpees
