No matter your age, background, political views, or social status, war has become a part of our culture. From our earliest memory in history class, where we first learned about the Civil War, World War I & II, and now the War on Terror, war has been a part of every generation. It’s not hard to find the older Veteran wearing his ball cap proudly, the former warrior sporting his specific branch apparel proudly, or the camouflage fatigues that pass you by in the rush of life. What is behind those uniforms, ball caps, and apparel are some of our greatest heroes whose stories have never been told. These soldiers are everyday citizens, dads, moms, brothers, sisters, sons and daughters all with one common goal, to protect and serve the United States of America. After September 11th, our warriors lives would never be the same. It wasn’t a matter of if, but when they would deploy. From the day our soldiers signed the dotted line, the first push-up of boot camp, the countless days of deployment, we will never fully understand the sacrifice these warriors and their families make.
This Saturday at CrossFit Gardendale, we are proud to host the WOD with Warriors event. This is a great opportunity for our CFG family to come together to honor, show respect, and thank all of our former, current, and fallen soldiers who have paid the ultimate price. The “21 Gun Salute” workout will be just one way we join in with our own CFG soldiers and say thank you for all that you have done! Join us this Saturday at 8:00 a.m. as we celebrate our military, our country, and our heroes at CrossFit Gardendale!
