SINCE WORLD WAR I, MORE THAN 645,000 MEN AND WOMEN HAVE GIVEN THEIR LIVES IN DEFENSE OF OUR NATION. THE POPPY IS A SYMBOL OF REMEMBRANCE OF THOSE WHO MADE THE ULTIMATE SACRIFICE.
For nearly 150 years, Americans have gathered in late spring to honor the sacrifice of those who have given their lives in service to their country. What began with dozens of informal commemorations of those killed in the Civil War has grown to become one of the nation’s most solemn and hallowed holidays. From its earliest incarnation as “Decoration Day” to its modern-day observances, CrossFit Sonora honors the fallen with Memorial Day Murph. Join us at 0900 or 1030 hours. Family and friends are welcome to attend and scaled options are available.
