D-Day 78th Anniversary Q
This morning 11 PAX celebrated and paid tribute to the 78th anniversary of the D-Day invasion, the brave men that participated, and their sacrifice. They were split into red, white, and blue teams and the beatdown was broken into three phases:
1). Airborne Pathfinders – coupon carry and exercises on the turf field to light the beacon for forthcoming airborne drop
- 25 merkins, 50 BBS, 75 air press, 100 LBC, 50 yard run (all as a team)
2). Combat Engineers – stormed bloody Omaha with bangalore torpedoes (a.k.a. landscaping timbers) bear crawling/inch worming torpedoes to top of hill with merkins and burpees along the way
3). 75th Ranger Regiment @ Pointe du Hoc – climb steep hill in teams doing 77 (KIA during assault) individual reps of SSHs, air press, LBC at top and 225 (total force strength) reps or merkins, BBS, squats collectively at the bottom.
Returned to flag for some Mary, CoT, and coffeeteria
