31 Heroes

"On August 6th 2011, 31 of America's bravest warriors gave their lives in defense of our freedom. While we'd like to leave the responsibility of announcing their names to their families & the DoD, for now we will honor them by mentioning their roles in our military. They were 17 Navy SEALs, two Navy EOD Technicians, three Naval Special Warfare Combat Support Sailors, two Army Avaitors, three Army Aircrew, three Air Special Tactics Operators, and one Military Working Dog."

Grapevine Crossfit, along with hundreds of other Crossfit gyms across the US honored these fallen soldiers and their families with a Hero Workout. It is just a small sacrifice we can make for 31 minutes of our weekend to show our appreciation for their service.
