U.S. Air Force Senior Airman Bradley R. Smith, 24, of Troy, Illinois, assigned to the 10th Air Support Operations Squadron, based in Fort Riley, Kansas, was killed on January 3, 2010, by an improvised explosive device in Zhari district, Kandahar Province, Afghanistan. He is survived by his wife Tiffany, daughter Chloe, parents Gary and Paula, and brother Ryan.

From Riptide CF:

Thank you Airman Smith for your sacrifice to our Country.

I have made the executive decision that at Riptide we will take on part of the task of honoring our Nation’s (and other Nation’s) Heroes whom CrossFit HQ has chosen to honor by naming a workout after them. This is going to be a monumental task and some days we will feel like we can not make it but they have given the ultimate sacrifice and now we will try our best to remember them by giving 100% effort each time they come up. The mission if you choose to accept it is:

  1. Complete all Hero workouts on the day that the Hero unfortunately passed away.
  2. Honor them by giving your 100% effort that day

We will be posting these as the daily workout and we want to see how many people are committed to completing each and every one.
