I was greeted with a stiff North wind this morning as i headed to the car and wondered how many brave soles would fight off the fart sack demon.  9 dedicated men beat the fart sack alarm and made there way to the Veterans Day Hero Patriot.  After the mission statement and disclaimer with plenty of shivering going on, this is how it went down.

We moseyed to the front parking lot for Warmarama.

Round 3 back to the parking lot

Lined up in parking lot and started the  # 11 workout starting with 1 single count plank jack , LT Dan to next line 10 burpees, LT Dan back to the starting line for 2 plank jacks.  When we got to the half way point we switched from Lt Dan’s between the two exercises to sprinting

We moseyed to the starting point for a short round of mary which included low slow flutter, and boss tweeds for the FIA ladies arriving.

Veterans Day Salute

We moseyed back to the starting point and each PAX member honored a Veteran they knew by giving their name, service, and a brief story about them.  It was so amazing to hear about the service of each man,  Thank you for everyone for sharing this, it was very special.  My Father was a proud WWII Navy veteran until the day he died,  He dropped out of school in the 11th grade, lied about his age so he could join the Navy, and fought for our county in the South Pacific.  Not just today because it is Veterans Day, but any chance you get,  thank a Veteran young or old for their service.  Take the time to talk to them and listen to their stories.  They have experienced things that many of us never will and it’s history that needs to be passed down from generation to generation.

It was an honor to lead on such a special day.  Thank you to all the PAX members who have served or currently serving in the Military.  Thank you for your service.
