Background: This workout is dedicated to U.S. Army soldier Hayden Harris who went missing from Fort Drum in upstate New York has been found dead in New Jersey on December 18, 2020.

The body of Hayden Harris was found in a wooded area in Byram Township on Saturday afternoon, Sussex County First Assistant Prosecutor Gregory Mueller said. U.S. Army officials gave little detail beyond confirming Harris’ death in a press release. He was last seen between 8 p.m. Dec. 17 and 6:30 a.m. Dec. 18, according to Army officials.

Harris was meeting with fellow soldier, Jamaal Mellish, 23, in Watertown, New York, near Fort Drum for “some type of vehicle exchange” when the meeting escalated.

Authorities believe Mellish “abducted” Harris in Harris’ 2017 white Chevrolet Silverado and drove him to the New York City area and eventually across the state, Mueller said. A juvenile, whose identity has not been released, was also in the vehicle. Harris was killed in the wooded area in Byram.

Harris was posthumously promoted to the rank of corporal following his death and awarded the Army Commendation Medal, Army officials said. Harris joined the Army in March 2019. He arrived in Fort Drum in July 2019 after training at Fort Benning, Georgia.

Harris was touted as a “great soldier” by Brig. Gen. Brett Funck, acting senior commander of the 10th Mountain Division (Light Infantry) and Fort Drum. Harris’ awards and decorations include two Army Achievement Medals, the National Defense Service Medal, the Global War on Terrorism Service Medal and the Army Service Ribbon. He graduated Air Assault School in 2019.

The workout was designed by Warrior’s Path CrossFit @warriorspathcrossfit (Andover, NJ, USA) and was first performed on December 28, 2020. They do not know Hayden personally but they found out about him after his body was found in their town.

We chose to include no barbell movements because to our knowledge, he did not train at a CrossFit box. We chose to include pistols because we learned Hayden was excited to be starting sniper school in the near future.

The rep scheme signifies:
– 89 calorie Row to represent the 89th Cavalry which Hayden was a part of
– 10 roudns for the 10th Mountain Division
– 12-18-20 reps for the date of Hayden’s death
-2 reps for the 2nd Brigate Combat Team
– 1 for the 1st Squadron
–  200 meters Farmer’s Carry represents distance the firefighters/police carried him, wrapped in the American Flag.
