On 9 June 2010, the crew of Pedro 66 and Pedro 67 responded to a call for help in the southern province of Afghanistan. It would be their 2nd combat rescue of the day. When Pedro 67 landed to pick up a critically injured marine, Pedro 66 came under enemy fire. In the engagement, Pedro 66 tail rotor was taken out and she sprung out of control impacting the ground from 150 feet at 120 knots. 1 Combat Rescue Officer (Capt. Joel Gentz), 2 Pararescuemen (Tsgt Micheal Flores/SrA Benjamin White) died on impact. Flight Engineer SSgt David Smith died moments later; Pilot Capt. David Wisniewski died weeks later from his injuries suffered. Capt. Anthony Simone and MSgt Christopher Aguilera are the only 2 survivors.

The workout was designed by Christopher Aguilera and Coach Ty Yamasaki at CrossFit Veni Vidi Vici @crossfitvenividivici (Henderson, NV), who said these movements were chosen because they "weren't liked by my guys when we worked out."

3 rounds, 22 reps equals 66 as in Pedro 66. The 5 movements for the five men lost that day, and one push-up for each.
