On #nationalmedalofhonorday , I want to recognize the oldest living @marines#medalofhonor recipient, retired Marine Chief Warrant Officer-4 Hershel “Woody” Williams, 94 (that's my Pop on the right, no MOH recipient, but still my hero).
Born Oct. 2, 1923, Williams was awarded the Medal of Honor for his actions during World War II at the Battle of Iwo Jima. On Feb. 23, 1945, then-Cpl. Williams, a demolition sergeant, repeatedly charged alone toward concrete pillboxes where the Japanese were firing machine guns in order to “wipe out one position after another” with explosive charges and flamethrowers. “On one occasion, he daringly mounted a pillbox to insert the nozzle of his flamethrower through the air vent, killing the occupants and silencing the gun; on another he grimly charged enemy riflemen who attempted to stop him with bayonets and destroyed them with a burst of flame from his weapon,”. Woody walks and talks like he's on the better side of 50, and has provided Marines and servicemembers the standard for what we should all strive to achieve inmilitary virtue. Here's to you, Woody. #semperfidelis#earnednevergiven#valor#medalofhonorday#uncommonvalorwasacommonvirtue#marines#motivationmonday
Session 13 Class 9 Beginners Athlete of the Week is Jacob Pollizze. Jacob is all heart and has taken the program seriously since the moment he walked into the gym on his first day. This kid is always focused and always dialed in to what the coaches are teaching both physically and emotionally. Jacob has made vast improvements and keeps getting better. A few weeks ago, Jacob felt a bit dizzy at class and nasaus during class. Jacob could have easily sat out and no one would have been upset at him, but he chose to power through and he told his parents he didn’t want to miss the lesson. This kid has heart and courage and we admire his no quit attitude. Well done Jacob. You are one of our rising stars. Well done buddy. The coaches are all so proud of you! #Hardworkpaysoff#Weneverquit#Lifetoughkids#Earnednevergiven . Jake Pollard Jeffrey Weber Steve Linder Matthew Newman Tony West.
