About the wod
Dedicated to Zachary Clouser, a young soldier and member of TCB CrossFit (Columbia, South Carolina) who was killed in action. Pfc. Zachary Clouser, of Dover Township, had been Iraq for nearly a year and would have turned 20 in a couple of weeks.
Army Spc. Zachary R. Clouser, 19, of Dover, Pa.; assigned to the 1st Battalion, 26th Infantry, 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 1st Infantry Division, Schweinfurt, Germany; died July 18, 2007 in Adhamiyah, Iraq, of wounds sustained when his vehicle was attacked by enemy forces using an improvised explosive device and small-arms fire. Also killed were Sgt. 1st Class Luis E. Gutierrez-Rosales, Spc. Richard Gilmore III and Spc. Daniel E. Gomez.
“Zachary was the biggest prankster, jokester, anything he could do to get anybody to smile,” said his mother, Deb Etheridge.
Clouser joined the Army soon after graduating from Dover Area High School in 2005. He came back to visit the school while on leave in the spring, principal Joel Riedel said.
“This is a very, very sad thing. We were stunned yesterday when we got the call from the Army recruiter,” Riedel said.
Clouser had six siblings and loved to hunt and fish. Etheridge said her son planned to learn more about computers or criminology after his enlistment ended in 2009.
This “Zach (Clouser)” Hero WOD was submitted to us by TCB CrossFit, a US military CrossFit affiliate. They created the workout by request of Zach’s Army recruiter.
