So YHC was browsing through some social media yesterday that led him to the MARSOC Facebook page, which led him to the pictures, which led him to seeing the recruiting pictures for MARSOC, which led him to seeing the workouts that MARSOC suggests using to prepare for trying out for MARSOC, and which finally led him to seeing the MARSOC Shortcard. This workout involved multiple exercises that are done with little to rest in between. Given that this is F3 and we like to do the harder thing, YHC took the shortcard and made it just a little bit harder. 10 pax started, 10 pax finished, 10 new F3 Operators.
Weather: Cold front coming in, mid 70’s with a breeze and then God gave Chesty Puller an order and Chesty gave us some rain.

BOM led by Meltdown
Isiah 21:6 “Go, set a watchman, and let him declare what he seeth”
Led to great discussion about accountability, loving the sinner and hating the sin, and setting an example for others. Great story by Chum as well.
