We conclude our annual Independence day tradition of Heroine Workouts by honoring U.S. Army Capt. Jennifer M. Moreno.
Jenny, the second ever CrossFit female Hero WOD, of San Diego, California, died Oct. 6, 2013, in Zhari District, Afghanistan.
Captain Moreno served as a CST attached to the 75th Ranger Regiment. She was killed in Kandahar by a multiple IED explosion that also took the life of two Rangers, an Army MP and wounded 25 others.
She was posthumously awarded the Bronze Star Medal with Valor for rushing into a building amidst the explosions to render aid to a wounded Ranger when she was killed.
Rest in peace, Ma'am. I've got the watch.
