Fitness community takes part in 'Crossfit For Hope' on FOB Gamberi

U.S. Army Maj. Demetrius Perry, of Houston, Texas, performs a power snatch during the “Crossfit For Hope,” held at Forward Operating Base Gamberi, July 5, 2013. The Gameri fitness community participated in the annual event that raises money for a children’s charity in which profits go directly to chosen organizations that help find a cure for children’s’ illnesses. Each of the participants wore a small black ribbon pinned to the front of their shirt in remembrance of U.S. Army Spc. Hilda Clayton, a native of Augusta, Ga., and combat documentation/production specialist who was killed while taking pictures of Afghan National Army soldiers during a live-fire mortar weapons system training exercise, July 2, 2013. Perry serves as executive officer for the 5th Battalion, 82nd Field Artillery Regiment, 4th Brigade Combat Team, 1st Cavalry Division, based out of Fort Hood, Texas. (U.S. Army photo by Staff Sgt.
