boot camp, Perrysburg
Boot camp style workout. On the River. Amazing way to watch the sun come up and start the day with sweat pouring over your rejuvenated soul. Some ramps, lots of steps, a little concrete, a little grass, all the fixens for beautifully scripted beatdown!
You have to park at Hood Park, Downtown Perrysburg, or one of the side streets (i.e. Cherry, Walnut, or Second Street).
Covered the 3Fs, Mission, and Principles. Covered them again with the FNG as he showed up just after YHC finished.
15 PAX – Bourbon, Coal, Montoya, Dutch, Crab Legs, Ponzi, Landslide, Flo, Gepetto, Spaulding, Hazmat, Chanel, Mile High, FNG “Nyquil”, Woodstock (Q)
YHC began by talking about the events of November 8th, 1965: the 173rd Airborne Brigade on Operation Hump, War Zone D in Vietnam were ambushed by over 1200 V.C. The initial force countering that was 30-40 men, and the total company was around 200 men. Forty-eight American soldiers lost their lives that day. Severely wounded and risking his own life, Lawrence Joll, a medic, was the first living black man since the Spanish-American War to receive the United States Medal of Honor for saving so many lives in the midst of battle that day. Caught in the action of ‘kill or be killed’ – ‘greater love hath no man to lay down his life for a friend.’
Big & Rich wrote the song “8th of November” about those events, and also did a documentary about going back to Vietnam to help one of the survivors bury his past demons. Pretty cool if you have an hour to spare. https://youtu.be/gw_UJwwI_Is Also, if you want to learn more about Operation Hump – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Operation_Hump
We then held plank while listening to the song (3:30).
YHC then discussed Veterans Day History with the assembled PAX: November 11th is Veterans Day. Unlike Memorial Day, where we honor and remember the fallen, and Armed Forces Day where we honor and thank those currently serving, on Veterans Day we thank and honor those who have served (and are still living). Originally called Armistice Day and intended to honor the veterans of WWI, it was changed to Veterans Day after WWII.
In honor of both those who suffered on this date in history, and those Veterans, we did the following:
For each exercise, AYG for 2 minute rounds, followed by 22 reps in cadence to acknowledge the estimated 22 Veterans who commit suicide every day – for more info, see http://www.22kill.com/
Merkins (wall base) 2 minutes, then 22 reps,
Stairs (2 minute, then everyone up top)
Lt. Dan (top of the wall) 2 minutes, then 22 reps
mosey down ramp to lowest railing
australians 2 minutes, 22 reps.
Dips (wall base) 2 minutes, then 22 reps
flutter kicks (top of the wall) (2 minutes, 22 reps),
squats (wall base) 2 minutes, 22 reps
Coal was the 6
Prayers for those traveling, the CA nightclub shooting victims, Flo’s friend, thanks for our Veterans and that we can work to get that 22 number down to 0.
