This "CG-6535" Hero WOD, created by CrossFit Mid-County (Nederland, TX) on July 26, 2012, is dedicated to the crew of the U.S. Coast Guard Helicopter 6535, the crash of which on February 28, 2012, resulted in the tragic deaths of Lt. Cmdr. Dale Taylor, Lt. j.g. Thomas Cameron, Chief Petty Officer Fernando Jorge, and Petty Officer 3rd Class Andrew Knight.

“Dale, Tom, Nando and Drew answered the call,” said Coast Guard Commandant Adm. Bob Papp. “They stepped forward and dedicated their lives to helping others – the only thing stronger than their desire to fly was their desire to serve. And, they did serve – they served all of us.”

The 4 rounds of this workout represent the 4 members of the Air Crew that perished on February 28, 2012. The 6-5-3-5 rep scheme is the call sign of the Helo.
