About the wod
Background: This tribute WOD is dedicated to Shane Ortega, U.S. Army (ret).
While in the Army, Shane @shaneortega_ served at Wheeler Airfield in Oahu, Hawaii as a helicopter crew chief in the Army’s 25th Infantry Division, and was the first openly trans soldier in the U.S. Military.
Ortega has been on over 400 combat missions in Iraq and Afghanistan, “and fought side-by-side in foxholes and remote operating bases.” Ortega stated, “I will continue to fight this fight for the 700,000 transgender veterans that have gone before me who were forced to choose between serving their country and being true to who they are.”
We first found this workout, dubbed “Shane,” posted by OUTAthletics @out.athletics (formerly OUTWOD) on May 14, 2018.
