Many service members at Kandahar Airfield in Afghanistan enjoy participating in Crossfit. After taking part in a memorial competition for one fallen hero, some members of the 655th Regional Support Group decided to take it to the next level, and hold a fund-raising memorial competition for the 100 dignified transfers that had come through KAF up to that point in 2012.
