CrossFit Ballwin – CrossFit

This workout is dedicated to the 13 soldiers who died on August 26, 2021, at the airport in Kabul, Afghanistan, while engaged in a dangerous, selfless mission to save the lives of others. They were assisting in the evacuation of US Citizens and friendly Afghan nationals. Thirteen soldiers died, 11 Marines, an Army Corpsman, and a Navy Corpsman.

The attack marked one of the deadliest days for American forces in the past decade of the 20-year war in Afghanistan — and took place just days ahead of the U.S.’s planned full withdrawal from the country that was overtaken on Aug. 15 by the Taliban.

The soldiers who sacrificed their lives were:
– Dylan Merola – 20
– Daegan William-Tyeler Page – 23
– Humberto Sanchez – 22
– Johanny Rosario – 25
– Nicole Gee – 23
– Hunter Lopez – 22
