We had a great Memorial Day WOD yesterday at Letrono in Syracuse and WCF athletes traveled to CF SLC and to Sugarhouse Park to workout with several Affiliates there in honor of Memorial day and Lt Michael Murphy. When I send my kids to school I wonder why the story of Paul Revere is the only tale of American valor they’ll ever learn about and there’s no mention of Audie Murphy (the most decorated soldier in US history), any Medal of Honor winner, or the incredible courage and service of our men and women in uniform. I remember going to the Vietnam Memorial wall in Washington, D.C. as a teenager and seeing grown men sobbing as they located the names of their friends and family. It was the first time I realized on any visceral level that a sacrifice had been made so I could enjoy the level of freedom and privilege we have in America. So thank you to our veterans, men and women in uniform, and their families for the sacrifices you make and the dangers you face.
