Captain McKenna and his unit were on foot patrolling the streets of fallujah, Iraq, when his unit came under coordinated sniper attack. Lance Corporal Michael Glover, who was the point man for the patrol, was struck by a sniper’s bullet and lay wounded on the ground. Capt McKenna immediately called for his men to throw smoke grenades around Cpl. Glover. Captain McKenna ordered his men to maintain the position of cover and went into the cloud of smoke to aid Cpl. Glover. As Captain McKenna was dragging Cpl. Glover to safety, he was hit by sniper fire.

John received the Silver Star for “Ignoring the imminent peril from heavy incoming fire, Captain McKenna ran into the intersection in an effort to save his downed Marine. completely exposed to enemy fire, he calmly knelt next to the stricken Marine to assess his condition. As he began to drag the Marine to a covered position, Captain McKenna was hit by enemy fire and was mortally wounded.”

“Bookin Heavil”
5 Rounds for time of
Run 200m
Deadlift x 5 (275/185lbs)
Handstand Push-up x 9

Notes: Deadlift weight assignments to be scaled up or down based on where an athlete’s 60%1RM determines the most appropriate benchmark designated load (example: 275lbs would become 225lbs if that weight represents 60% of an athlete’s current strength level of development pertaining to the deadlift movement).
HSPU may scale up to defects; however, kipping is being reinforced with Push Press technique as a transitional skill set relative today and will thus be the preferred method of repetition execution.
