The "Three Wise Men" WOD was originally posted on threewisementribute.org, which has since joined Headstrong, "a national organization that provides post-9/11 veterans with cost-free, stigma-free and bureaucracy-free mental health care." After the September 11th attacks on the US, Jeremy joined the Navy and became a SEAL. Ben, already in the Army, became a member of the legendary Green Berets. Beau followed his brothers and joined the Marine Corps Infantry. Together they served over 1,600 days in Iraq and Afghanistan. Tragically Jeremy was killed by a suicide bomber in Afghanistan on December 30, 2009. Just over two years later, Ben was killed in a firefight in Afghanistan on January 10, 2012. Beau remained on active duty in the United States Marine Corps.

The "21 Guns" WOD, created for "WOD With Warriors," as a functional fitness tribute workout held twice a year on Veterans and Memorial Day in the US - "to honor our Nation's’ Warriors, past, present and future." The 21-minute workout and 21 repetitions signify a 21-gun salute, with an exercise for each of the five Branches of the Military. A 21 Gun Salute is the US' highest display of honor, appropriately reserved for Fallen troops on Memorial Day.
