Hi Guys,

This weekend, I got the opportunity to sit down with a good friend, Crossfitter, and Navy Corpsman who just returned from deployment with an elite unite of Recon Marines.

We discussed his deployment, Crossfit, and the rigors of fieldwork at length. A transcript, along with a bunch of exclusive and beautiful pictures from the field are now on Again Faster.

I hope you enjoy the interview: ml

Very awe-inspiring... I cannot imagine having to hump 1500 meters with a 270lb. guy over my shoulder. Thank you to your friend for his service to our country.

Thanks for sharing Jon, that was great!
My favorite quote was, "If I can't carry him, I can't take care of him."

thanks for sharing the article, Jon.

it's interesting that as important as functional fitness is for the operators not all the operators buy in to the "Crossfit idea". Yet the PFT results and actual field results (carrying a guy 1.5km) speak volumes.

That gives credence to the old saying - You can lead a horse to water but you can't make him drink...
