This was the 2nd Hero WOD CrossFit ever posted back in 2005.
Michael McGreevy was one of 16 troops killed when a MH- 47 Chinook helicopter was shot down in Afghanistan June 28, 2005, on a daring night mission to reinforce a four-man SEAL reconnaissance squad that was ambushed in 10,000-foot mountainous terrain.
McGreevy, seven other SEALs, and eight Army Nightstalker” commandos, died in a heroic attempt to rescue their fellow SEALs. LT Michael Murphy, Matthew Axelson, and Danny Dietz fought on courageously, providing protective fire that enabled a fourth squad member to escape before they were killed in the fierce firefight by overwhelming Taliban forces.
