Memorial Day beatdown at Rockyface

  • When: 5/29/2017
  • QIC: Clifford BRD
  • The PAX: Part Time, 3-Dog, Frag, Tapeworm, and Clifford BRD.

What a beautiful morning for a beatdown. It was a great not because the sun was shining, not because the birds were singing, but because God gave us this day and because of the men and women that fought and died for this Great Nation that we call home. Yes my friends YHC is talking about Memorial Day. The day we remember why we have the freedom that we have, and the day that we remember those that died for that freedom. And for some reason this Great Nation of ours seems to think that we don’t need to remember them anymore, well you would be wrong to believe that. To be honest with you YHC thinks that we don’t remember these men and women enough. Every day we wake up we should thank our God for giving us a new day and next thank those that lost their lives in war. And please let’s not get Memorial Day weekend mixed up with it’s just another three day weekend to have a party and get together with friends and family. It’s much much more then that. Just ask a family member of a soldier that came home in a casket. To all those men and women whom lost their lives in battle this beatdown is in honor of you. So this is how it went down.

Again it was a great day to have this beatdown. This was the first time that Part Time and Tapeworm have hit the vertical mile course and they did a great job. Frag had another strong showing as he led the PAX up and down the course. 3-Dog had a scary moment. After we stood up from the Bear Crawl and was getting ready to head the rest of the way up the rock face. He got very light headed and had to take a knee for a few minutes. And then he looked up at YHC and said that Bear Crawl about do me in. He was able to gather himself and push hard to the end. As we finished out the beatdown around the Flag we took the moment to say The Pledge of Allegiance and took another moment to talk again of the importance of Memorial Day.

Clifford closed out in prayer.

Always an honor Clifford out!!!!
