Today is FORGED FRIDAY at New Species CrossFit – As athletes we will lift a little heavier and jump a little higher than we normally do on Friday. As coaches we ask that you perform today’s WOD as a way of honoring the Six soldiers who died on Tuesday when their Black Hawk UH-60 went down during a mission. One soldier survived the crash.
The five Fort Riley soldiers were identified as Chief Warrant Officer 2 Randy Billings of Heavener, Oklahoma; Chief Warrant Officer 2 Joshua Silverman of Scottsdale, Arizona; Sgt Peter Bohler of Willow Spring, North Carolina; Sgt 1st Class Omar Forde of Marietta, Georgia; and Specialist Terry Gordon of Shubuta, Mississippi.
A sixth soldier, based in Vilseck, Germany, was identified as Staff Sgt Jesse L Williams, 30, of Elkhart, Indiana.
Work hard and let’s honor these heroes.
