“Legion 8” is a Hero WOD commemorating the lives of the 8 men (Terry, Blake, Emerson, Ryan, Coon, Doc, Caleb, Jimmy) – the soldiers of Company B, 1st Battalion, 8th Cavalry Regiment, 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 1st Cavalry Division (Bravo Company, 1-8) – who died during Operation Iraqi Freedom on June 8, 2007.

“Legion 8” originated in July, 2012 at Premier CrossFit in Tyler, TX primarily initiated by a man named Jeff Morris.  Jeff shared his own story that led to the birth of Legion 8. The story of a strong brotherhood, a tight-knit group of brave men who trained together, fought together, and who deployed twice together. And then the heartbreaking story of each of the men who died serving in Baghdad during Operation Iraqi Freedom in 2007. Jeff tells a story of losing friends and brothers and then having to look in the eyes of those left and say, “We have a job to finish here. We have to keep going. We have to see this through.” And they did.  For more info on Legion 8, click on the above pic to go to Premier CrossFit’s page.
