Alex Viola 29, of Keller, Texas, assigned to 3rd Battalion, 7th Special Forces Group (Airborne), Eglin Air Force Base, Fla.; died Nov. 17, 2013 in Kandahar, Afghanistan, of wounds suffered when his unit was attacked with an improvised explosive device while on dismounted patrol. Not only was Alex a hero but he was also a cherished CrossFit Coach.

We first found this workout posted on militarytimes.com. Years later a different workout by the same name, also created for Staff Sgt. Viola, was posted on crossfit.com.
