Sgt. Russell “Russ” Durgin was assigned to the 1st Battalion, 32nd Infantry Regiment, 10th Mountain Division, Fort Drum, N.Y. He was killed on June 13, 2006 when his unit took small arms fire in Korengel, Afghanistan.

We first found this WOD posted on Instagram by @billwilkinson11c, “former Infantryman with USMC & US Army turned Veteran Social Worker,” whose post said, “Let’s honor Sgt. Russell Durgin this upcoming 6/13/18. Climb to Glory! KIA 6/3/06.”

“This workout mimics the physical challenges of the mountain warfare Durgin endured daily. Walking with heavy and unsteady weight to reacting to contact with a sudden, full-on sprint before dropping your pack. Then, crawling to a fighting position where shooting and maneuvering from there pushes your entire body beyond fatigue.”
