Since AOQ, Flash, told me he would be DR and my birthday is canceled, we will celebrate the Angel Birthday of Danny Dietz, USN SEAL who died in AFG during Operation Red Wings.  His last fight was depicted in the movie, Lone Survivor.

Modified Danny Dietz WOD

DOB 1-26-1980 Aurora, CO —-

 KIA 6-28-2005 Kunar AFG

On  a mountain high in the Hindu Kush of Afghanistan, in a deadly firefight  with the Taliban, Navy SEAL Danny Dietz refused to quit, even though he  had been hit four times.

Shot in the neck, he fell to the  ground, but recovered to jam a new magazine onto his rifle. When ordered  to fall back, he leaped off a precipice with the rest of his team, hit  the ground, crawled to cover from incoming fire. Half-conscious and  covered in blood, he was still providing covering fire for his team when  he was struck by a fatal bullet. He died on June 28, 2005.

The  steadfast determination that Dietz displayed in that long and brutal  battle earned him the Navy Cross for valor and was evident more than a  decade before, when the Littleton teen turned his life around after  being kicked out of two high schools and landing in court three times.
