Since his honorable discharge in 2010, David had been supporting the U.S. Government in austere environments as an independent contractor. He was killed in action on November 27, 2014 - Thanksgiving Day - in Afghanistan. When his compound came under attack, Dave was providing cover for his team when he was hit by enemy fire.
He was awarded the Bronze Star Medal with Valor, Army Commendation Medal, Army Achievement Medal, Army Good Conduct Medal, National Defense Service Medal, Global War on Terrorism Service Medal, and Iraq Campaign Medal with Campaign Star, among others.
We found this workout via CrossFit Potero Hill (San Francisco, CA, USA), posted to Instagram after a group completed the workout in Dave's honor, "for our very own Dave "Hooch" Roten. Dave was constantly on the move, but he never missed a workout. He loved adventures that were physically challenging, and his favorite exercise was deadlifts. Dave is survived by his loving family and so many friends across the country."
