About the wod
Originally from Hendersonville, GA, Cpl Reeves was deployed as part of the troop surge to combat increased violence in Iraq. On the day of his death, Cpl. Reeves was on patrol in Baghdad when an improvised explosive device detonated near his Humvee, killing him instantly.
Tragically, Cpl. Reeves' first child was born the night prior to his death.
"Joshua H. Reeves" was designed by Justin Sloan, Army Master Fitness Trainer, NSCA Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist and head coach and owner of Armywod.com. Cpl. Reeves' service, and sacrifice, shares a special place of honor for Justin, as he was Cpl. Reeves' Army recruiter. Upon hearing the details of Cpl. Reeves' death, Justin sought to honor his memory.
According to Justin, there is no significance to the movements chosen, however, the five rounds signifies Cpl. Reeves' place as one of five siblings and the rep scheme reflects the date Cpl. Reeves made the ultimate sacrifice.
