Here at the Blankenship household we celebrated not only the Marine Corps birthday on November 10th, but today we also celebrate Veteran’s Day.
We come from a long line of Veterans that served.
My father and my grandfather both served in the Army.
I served in the Marine corps from 90-98 and my son is currently in the Marine Corps.
In the past we’ve gone camping on Veterans day weekend. We’d usually take our motorhome down to Camp Pendleton. Can’t beat the ocean front views or the price.
I was really glad when the started allowing Disabled Veterans such as myself access to the base a few years ago, including the campgrounds.
This year we stayed home. And obviously working.
But my son and I did carve out some time to honor our Veterans by completing the CrossFit Hero WOD honoring Chad Wilkinson. This involves 1000 box steps wearing a 45 pound ruck.
Anyways, it was fun to get a workout in with my son on Veterans day.
Any extra time we can sneak in with our son we’ll take.
Hoping you are also enjoying your Veterans Day.
