“That Ragged Ol’ Flag…”

That Ragged Ol’ Flag…

I’m Not Ashamed… The Picture Above Was Taken @ CrossFit Riverside When We First Opened Up… It Was The Second Time It Was Flown Since 2006 In Iraq… Now It Flies Inside RC CrossFit…

I Tried To Write Up Something To Describe The Meaning Why RC CrossFit Flies A Ragged Ol’ Flag Instead Of A Brand New Bought From Wal-Mart Flag…

But I Think This Video Totally Topped Me…

Happy 4th Of July Everyone!!!

Hopefully Everyone Loved The 4th Of July WOD…

Every Time I Walk Into RC CrossFit… I Stand At Attention For A Few Seconds… 3 Exactly… And Every Time I Walk Out Of RC CrossFit… I Do The Same… You Might Not Notice It… I Don’t Care If You Do Or Not… But To Me… That Ragged Ol’ Flag Represents My Family… Family Meaning Blood… Family Meaning Danielley & All Of Her Family… Family Meaning All Of My Marine Corps Brothers & Sisters… Family Meaning RC CrossFit…

I Remember The 1st Time Someone Approached Not Me… But Danielley… He Was Just “Asking” About Prices… He Was In The Army… I Was Coaching A Class So She Gave Him Info… I Remember He Walked Out… Then Walked Back In… She Was Sitting On A Bench & He Bent Over & Whispered Something In Her Ear… I Glanced Over And… Me Being Me… I Thought He Was Trying To Hit On Her… I Ran Over There But He Left… I Asked Danielley “What The FUCK Did He Say To You?!?!”  Being My Rock… She Said “Relax Babe… He Asked Me Why Do You Fly That Ragged Ol’ Flag? I Told Him… You See That Man Over There… He’s My Husband… And You Have No Idea What That Flag Means To Him… You Want More Answers??? Ask Him…”

He Walked Back Out Fast…

That Ragged Ol’ Flag Is Beat Up…

But That Ragged Ol’ Flag Made It Home…

Sometimes… All The Time… You Leave RC CrossFit Beat Up…

But You Make It Back To Your Home… AND… You Make It Back Everyday To Your RCCF Home…

1st & Foremost… That Flag Ragged Ol’ Flag Represents Me, My Family & My U.S. Marine Brothers & Sisters Who I Served With & The Marine Corps Lt. Col That I Pulled Out Of A Helicopter & Got Home To His Family…

But Also All Of My RC CrossFit Family…

Happy 4th Of July… Happy Everyday!!!
