About the wod
Background: This British Hero WOD is dedicated to David Fairbrother of the 42 Commando Royal Marines, who paid the ultimate price in combat on Sept. 19, 2011, while leading a foot patrol in Helmand Province, Afghanistan. Royal Marine Fairbrother was 24 years old.
On the day of his death, Royal Marine Fairbrother was leading a joint foot patrol with elements of the Afghan army when they were suddenly ambushed. During the exchange, Royal Marine Fairbrother was wounded by gunfire and died shortly thereafter.
