Posted on Posted in Backblasts

A chilly fog hung over The Frontier as 2 HIM posted on a Monday gloom for fitness, fellowship and faith. What this PAX lacked in numbers was made up for in vigor during the workout.

The Thang:

  • Six Minutes of Mary: Freddie Mercury, Flutter Kick, Dying Cockroach, LBC, Rosalita, Dolly

Eddie was killed in action on June 24, 2010 in Jelewar, Afghanistan, when insurgents attacked his unit with an improvised explosive device. Eddie was survived by his wife, First Sergeant Jennifer Loredo; his daughter, Laura Isabelle; his stepdaughter, Alexis; and his son, Eduardo Enrique.  The 6 rounds represent the month (June) and 24 repetitions represent the day Eddie died.
