Eleven years ago today a suicide bomber killed seven CIA officers and one Jordanian officer at a remote base in southeastern Afghanistan on after posing as a potential informant reporting on Al Qaeda. We are honoring the seven who died by doing the Hero Workout: The Seven.
Seven new stars were etched onto the memorial wall at the CIA where every star represents grieving friends, family and colleagues dedicated to fight against the enemy, forever in their name.
Killed in the attack were CIA officers Jennifer Lynne Matthews, 45; Scott Michael Roberson, 39; Harold E. Brown Jr., 37; Darren LaBonte, 35; Elizabeth Hanson, 30; and security contractors Jeremy Jason Wise, 35, and Dane Clark Paresi, 46.
Please remember, we do not have any classes tomorrow, Friday or Saturday.
Have a happy and safe New Year!
We will see you again on Monday, Jan 4th.
