Memorial Day - The Murph

His other posthumous awards include the Silver Star Medal (which was later upgraded to the Medal of Honor) and the Purple Heart.

The Pax will convene at Adventure Park at 7am (no 5:15a workout scheduled this day) on Monday, May 27, 2019.  Weight Vest optional.  Pre-Blast is available to read here: The Murph
