Semper Fidelis

From :


Semper Fidelis.  It’s the motto of the United States Marine Corps and it means “always faithful.”  Tomorrow, November 10, is the birthday of the USMC.  Marines all over the world will gather to celebrate and honor the brotherhood that has done so much for our country.  The Corps turns 237 tomorrow and we’ll show our respect today with a birthday WOD. 
If you want to see how you would stack up, come try the Marine Corps Physical Fitness Test (PFT)tomorrow.  It’s free and open to anyone willing to give it a try!  Be at the gym by 0730.
**REMINDER:  The gym will be closed on Monday, November 12, in honor of Veterans Day**
