Not only was Sgt Rock an ideal example of what a Marine should be, she was also a very driven individual when it came to fitness. She began martial arts at the age of 5 and went on to box in the Junior Regional Golden Gloves competition. This combination of being a challenge-driven individual and a determined Marine made her a valued asset to any operation. Her mother Cherie Rock elaborated by saying that she was always able to find success in what she did as a Marine while maintaining an “irreverent sense of humor” with everyone she came in contact with.
Marines that knew Sgt Rock described her as “a badass Marine” (Armond Johnson) and said, “she was a good woman and an even better Marine” (Thomas Favreau). Unfortunately, at the age of 27, Sgt Renata Rock, took her life on July 13, 2013. Too often do things like this happen where you find a Marine, like Sgt Rock, who personified our esprit de corps but was unable to get the help that she needed during her transition back to US soil after her time overseas.
This WOD “Rock” is designed to bring awareness to this epidemic that plagues our Marine Corps, as well as the other branches of service, and to honor her with a WOD worthy of the name “Rock”!
