Yesterday, five years ago on this very day, Chattanooga was rocked by an event most will never forget. A terrorist attack right here at home.

Since we were unable to host our event, YHC wanted to make sure to dedicate the workout and the COT to the men who paid the ultimate price. More was said, but let’s just leave with this…

Thank you: Sgt. Carson Holmquist, Petty Officer 2nd Class Randall Smith, Gunnery Sgt. Tommy Sullivan, Lance Cpl. Skip Wells, Staff Sgt. David Wyatt

Sidekick did the warm-up….

Jazzy made the list…

Completing 37.5 Rocky Balboas and 12.5 Burpees is unusual…

There were ZERO “that’s what she said” jokes…
