On Saturday we will be doing the hero WOD “Steele”

On August 23, 2011, family, friends, and the United States lost a True American Hero when U.S. Army 1st Lieutenant Timothy J. Steele gave his life in combat while serving his beloved county in Afghanistan. He was struck by an IED while on foot patrol. Tim was assigned to the 2nd Battalion, 87th Infantry Regiment, 3rd Brigade Combat Team, 10th Mountain Division out of Fort Drum N.Y. He was a 2009 graduate of the United States Military Academy at West Point and US Ranger School. Tim’s military awards and recognitions are numerous and distinguished. He is survived by his wife( Meghan), daughter (Liberty), parents and 7 siblings.
