The BackBlast:

Intro:

YHC rolled in hot (due to my own poor preparations after last night’s AMAZING Sever Mercy book discussion)  and joined up with Bunsen and Downhill who had just begun the morning’s EC Ruck.  The weather was fitting for what YHC had planned today as we trudged against the freezing rain while enjoying some great fellowship.  We were greeted by our downrange brother Dutch in town for business and soon after by Gump and Vinnie.  YHC stated the mission and provided the disclaimer before explaining today would be a special beatdown in honor of a true American hero then started the men off with….

The Thang:

This Hero workout is dedicated to Master Sgt. John A. Chapman, a US Air Force Combat Controller (Special Forces), who was killed in action in Afghanistan on March 4, 2002, during the Battle of Takur Gar. His actions during that battle would result in the Medal of Honor.

During the battle, MSgt. Chapman repeatedly exposed himself to hostile machine-gun fire while charging up a steep slope in knee-deep snow to eliminate the fortified enemy positions that had his teammates pinned down. Despite receiving several gunshot and shrapnel wounds, MSgt. Chapman continued to engage the enemy in order to protect incoming helicopters, before eventually succumbing to his wounds.

Naked Man Moleskin:

*PAX keep mentioning Moon Gods when I call Sun Gods, maybe YHC should give them what they want next time

**Mumblechatter was strong during Warm-0-Rama

*** Props to Gump who finished in time to be able to run the final lap, had to call Omaha out of respect for PAX time.  We technically still finished the WOD as all ran the 1200 meters at least three times

****ALWAYS a crowd favorite

As always it was an honor and a privilege to lead such a great group of men.
