CIRCLE OF TRUST:  This Monday is Memorial Day.  People get holidays confused, but Veteran’s Day is when we celebrate all Vets.  Memorial Day is when we honor all those who have given the last full measure of devotion by sacrificing their lives in the service of their country.  I created this HERO WOD to honor all those whose lives were cut short while defending our cherished way of life and all too forgotten or dismissed freedoms.  I named this Workout in honor of my cousin, PFC Woodrow H. Damron – CO B, 1ST BN, 23RD Marines, 4 Marine Division who was killed on 28 February 2019 D+9 during the assault on Turkey Knob at the Battle of Iwo Jima.  By March 3, 1945, two of every three infantrymen who came ashore on L-Day was a casualty.  After the Battle of Iwo Jima Admiral Charles Nimitz stated “By their victory, the 3rd, 4th, and 5th Marine Divisions and other units of the Fifth Amphibious Corps have made an accounting to their country which only history will be able to value fully. Among the Americans serving on Iwo Island, uncommon valor was a common virtue.

BALL OF MAN: Prayers for Fastlane, his wife, and her grandmother as they provide care for her.  This past week was rough for her and she and they need our thoughts and prayers.  Prayers for Clothespins Grandfather who is suffering from Parkinson’s.
