Veteran’s Day Beatdown

Figured we get that “sergeant slaughter” starter in today. Mumble chatter commenced (I like  burpees, said no one ever).

Today is Veteran’s Day. A day where we celebrate those who honorably served our country to protect the freedoms that many of us take for granted. My brother served in the Air Force for 6 years doing multiple tours in the middle east and being stationed overseas most of that time. I never served myself, so I would like to personally thank every veteran for their service. I also pray that those who have suffered physically or mentally in the line of duty, be uplifted today by those around them.

“The true soldier fights not because he hates what is in front of him, but because he loves what is behind him” – G.K. Chesterton

I really enjoyed today’s Q. We paid the man. Everyone should have a sore chest tomorrow. Especially if you are doing this month’s F3 pushup challenge. While I still stumble with speaking my prayers out loud, I hope to get better with time.

Slater is looking for volunteers to help him move from his house in Colleirville to another house in Collierville this Wednesday 11/13 @ noon. Check Slack for address.
