WOD Brief:

Command Sgt. Maj. Martin “Gunny” Barreras, 49, of Tucson, Arizona, died on May 13, 2014, of wounds he sustained during an attack on his unit on May 6, 2014. Barreras was well known for his contributions to the successful rescue of Jessica Lynch in 2003. He joined the Marine Corps in 1983 and the Army Rangers in 1988. He was the senior enlisted adviser in the 2nd Battalion, 5th Infantry, 3rd Brigade Combat Team, 1st Armored Division, Fort Bliss, Texas.

He used CrossFit training to improve his fitness and the fitness of his unit. Murph and Griff were among his favorite workouts, so we have a lovely mash-up of the two. Gunny is survived by his wife, Melinda; daughters, Amice and Victorria; and son, Calvin. Today is all about endurance and mental fortitude. Volume is high, so pick scales that’ll allow you to get through it. Let’s get after it NBK!
