Monday - WOD 36 - Chris Kyle WOD



CPO Chris Kyle

After a ton of research and some help from some friends (CrossFit Strive, ABC News), I was able to find all of the information that I needed to create a semi appropriate WOD for the Hero Chris Kyle.

Today we celebrate the life of CPO Chris Kyle, U.S. Navy, SEAL Team 3, Sniper Element, Charlie Platoon, who was shot and killed on February 2, 2013, in Texas.

Although Chris is best known for the title of the deadliest sniper in all of American history, this did not define the man. It was his job, which he did extraordinarily well, but it did not define who Chris was nor how he saw him.

We will celebrate his dedication to his country, his family and how he dedicated his life following his service to helping struggling veterans. Kyle gave all the proceeds from his bestselling book to families of soldiers killed in combat

In Chris’ last interview, he spoke about how he wanted to be remembered, his legacy: “I would love for people to be able to think of me as a guy who stood up for what he believed in and helped make a difference for the vets,” he said. “You know, somebody who cared so much about them that he wanted them taken care of.”

During his ten years of service, Kyle was the recipient of two Silver Stars, five Bronze Stars with Valor, two Navy and Marine Corps Achievement medals and one Navy and Marine Corps commendation, Kyle served four tours of duty in Iraq and is survived by his wife and two children.
