COT/Announcements

Papa Smurf of F3 Greenville passed away on Thursday after an ALS diagnosis less than 1 year ago, so please remember our brothers in Pitt County.  He was a pillar in the community, a mentor to many, and a friend to all.  Roboto, Deuce, and myself saw him at our Ruck Tough in Fort Macon (Roboto went up and talked to him) and we all carried an extra 5 lbs. brick that night in honor of him. YHC closed in prayer.

Great work today gentlemen, truly an honor to lead. This one looked good on paper and turned out tough.  I appreciate everyone pushing themselves, which helps me push myself.

Don’t be a LTO….. McRib

Papa Smurf – “Know that your life matters to many, so do good works, laugh everyday, and press on.”
