Thank You Veterans
Wednesday, we show honor and thanks to all who serve and have served in the United States Armed Forces. Veterans Day started as a day to reflect upon the heroism of those who died in our country’s service, and was originally called Armistice Day. It fell on Nov. 11 because that is the anniversary of the signing of the Armistice that ended World War I. In 1954, the holiday was changed to “Veterans Day” in order to account for all veterans in all wars.
A Hero WOD is a tribute to a fallen first responder or member of the military who died while serving honorably in the line of duty. …
Marine Master Sgt. Aaron Torian, 36, of Paducah, Kentucky, passed away Feb. 15, 2014, during combat operations in Helmand Province, Afghanistan. Torian was assigned to 2nd Marine Special Operations Battalion, Marine Special Operations Regiment, U.S. Marine Corps Forces Special Operations Command in Camp Lejeune, North Carolina, and was on his sixth deployment at the time of his death.
He started CrossFit training in 2006 and was one of the original members of CrossFit Wilmington in North Carolina. His favorite movements included cleans, thrusters, sprints and kettlebell swings. This WOD was put together in his honor and first seen on CrossFit.com February 2018.
He is survived by his wife, Jurley; and children, Elijah, Laura Bella and Avery.
