Fixing Jets with CrossFit?

My story is really short, but still fun!

We are deployed to sea so cranes and support equipment can be tough to come by. Tonight, we needed to get a very heavy actuator from the deck to the top of the aircraft, so I sent two guys to the top of the wing and cleaned that sucker to the rack position then push-pressed it overhead and handed it over to a couple of very surprised sailors.

Outstanding man. I bet your LCPO was surprised when he heard that account.
