Default Honor Tommy Mac- Saturday, 20 APR

Sorry this is coming up so soon, but I just found out about it. SGT Thomas Macpherson was KIA 12 OCT of last year in eastern Afghanistan. SGT Macpherson, of the 2/75th Ranger Regiment, is a SoCal native from Los Alamitos (near Long Beach)- a local hero.

There is a memorial event (hopefully the first of an annual event) being held this weekend as a fundraiser for his wife Claudia and their son Brayden. The event consists of a 5k run/walk and SGT Macphersons Crossfit hero WOD. There's also going to be a raffle, and lots of local companies have donated for WOD equipment and prizes. All of the details are available here:

On a personal note, I was supporting SGT Macpherson and his team last year when he was killed. I was there, surrounded by other tense, emotional Americans when he was announced Dead On Arrival. He was one of two operators we lost in as many days. So, this one hits close to home for me. If anyone could attend, that would be awesome! If not, please keep the Macpherson family in your thoughts and prayers to your deity of choice. Much appreciated!

Carry on!
"... You feel the anger thinking of the loved ones you will never see again, and losing your life infuriates your soul. You rage to get to your feet and grab for a weapon, any weapon. Regardless of your race, culture, or religion, you want to die standing, fighting like a warrior, an American, so others won't have to. For those looking for a definition, this is the price of freedom.

Sorry to hear about the loss, this kind of hits home for me since I grew up in Los Al myself and graduated from Los Al as well although I graduate many years before him. I don't think I'll be able to attend but his family definitely has my thoughts and prayers

Just saw this. The event was a huge success. Glad everyone could make it and help support a great cause.

We're going to be putting this on hopefully every year. So look out for this next year!
