LUMBERJACK CrossFit started with LTC Pete Andrysiak and a select few Soldiers in the 20th Engineer Battalion. It soon became way of life for over 750 Soldiers preparing for combat. 

Today the Fort Hood based Soldiers are back in Texas after a yearlong deployment to Kandahar, Afghanistan where they conducted route clearance operations to neutralize explosive hazards and ensure freedom of movement for the Afghan people and coalition forces. 

These brave Soldiers didn’t avoid IEDs, they went to find them. As you read this post, they are preparing to stand in the gap between chaos and peace once again. Some of the bravest Soldiers on the battlefield today, LUMBERJACKS see the dark cloud on the horizon and go to meet it for they know that sacrifice is the cost of liberty.
