Interwoven with the workout, we announced names of various Veterans – as many as we could that are active F3’ers. Family and friends were mentioned as well. I stole/paraphrased a quote that really resonated with me, posted on FB by Apache: “You want to thank a Veteran? Then be the kind of American worth fighting for. And never lose your appreciation for what this country stands for.”
