Ruck Litters Back to SP



It was a truly meaningful way to start and finish a workout.  Hearing the music immediately put us into a mode of remembrance and TL did an outstanding job explaining each song, the meaning behind them and paying tribute to our active, retired and fallen soldiers.  As we go through the days, it can become easy for us to forget how much of a sacrifice our veterans have made so that we can enjoy the freedoms that we hold so dear.

On behalf of TeamSPEARHEAD, THANK YOU to all Veterans for your service.  We are honored to share this life with you.   And a special shot out to our own TeamSPEARHEAD Vets who came out today.  Astronomer, AARP and Angler…we owe you so much and are blessed to have you on our team.

Thank you for working out with us today.  As always it’s an honor to lead such a strong group!

Respectfully, The Hoff on behalf of AARP
