Why honor Veterans with a CrossFit WOD? (read the quote below)

Organizers say it’s a way for athletes to push themselves physically and mentally to get just a small taste of what service members do every day overseas.

“We came up with the idea to call it ‘To the Lost’ to celebrate all those who gave their lives overseas and paid the ultimate sacrifice,” explained John Dill, owner of Crossfit Sua Sponte. “Everyone has specific individuals in their mind when they are doing the workout.”
