WOD 11.11.14

11/11/14 Veterans Day
Happy Veterans Day to all the members in the box that served our country! !
Thank you for your service and bravery !!

Veterans Day is an official United States holiday that honors people who have served in the U.S. Armed Forces, also known as veterans. It is a federal holiday that is observed on November 11. It coincides with other holidays such as Armistice Day and Remembrance Day, which are celebrated in other parts of the world and also mark the anniversary of the end of World War I. Major hostilities of World War I were formally ended at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918, when the Armistice with Germany went into effect. Veterans Day is not to be confused with Memorial Day; Veterans Day celebrates the service of all U.S. military veterans, while Memorial Day is a day of remembering the men and women who died while serving.

On the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918, an armistice, or temporary cessation of hostilities, was declared between the Allied nations and Germany in the First World War. This Armistice Day was later re-named to Veterans Day.

At exactly 11 a.m., each November 11th, a color guard, made up of members from each of the military branches, renders honors to America’s war dead during a ceremony at the Tomb of the Unknowns in Arlington National Cemetery.

 

The strength for today will be ..
3 (build) heavy Power cleans touch and go
+
10-15 ring dips ( use red band for assistance if needed)
4-6 sets

The 11-based rep scheme represents the rich history of Veterans Day.
The two-minutes of rest/reflection represents this moment of silence at the tomb of the unknowns.
The 1st round of work represents Veterans of wars past, and the 2nd round of work represents Veterans of present and future wars
Modified versions of classic military exercises are meant to help connect Veterans and the greater community to connect after the accomplishment of shared hardship during this WOD.
