11/3 WOD: "Tommy Mac"

The following statement is from Tommy’s former Platoon Leader… The whole thing with Tommy is that he embodies everything that’s right about Ranger Battalion. He held the position of Ranger Team Leader which is literally the tip of the spear. He was the consummate, quiet professional—he expected absolutely zero recognition for what he did. He loved his job because he was a born protector. He was perfectly content to carry out his life’s work under the cover of darkness, with his and his comrades’ actions to remain forever under the cloak of shadows. He died doing what he loved; protecting all of us. What stood out about Tommy the most was his maturity beyond his years. I believe it was the fact that he was the older brother of younger siblings, but like another Sgt. said “Tommy wasn’t one of those guys who joined the Army and grew into a man. He joined as a man and grew others.” He left behind his beautiful wife wife, Claudia MacPherson, and their son, Brayden.OLY:1) Every 30 seconds for 6 minutes :1 Power Snatch + 1 Hang Snatch (full squat) @ 75%*rest 2 minutes2) Every 45 seconds for 7 minutes:1 Power Clean + 1 Hang Clean (full squat) + 1 Push Press @ 75%GROUP:“Tommy Mac”2 RFT12 Burpees,12 Thruster (115/75),12 Burpees,12 Power Snatch,12 Burpees,12 Push Jerks,12 Burpees,12 Hang Squat Cleans,12 Burpees,12 OHSPartner works while other rests.
