PATRICK SPACE FORCE BASE, Fla. --
The 308th Rescue Squadron, Gold Star family members, and friends conducted a special memorial "Jolly 51" workout event at Patrick Space Force Base, Florida, March 9, honoring the seven service members who made the ultimate sacrifice on March 15, 2018, in the helicopter crash of "Jolly 51" that was flying contingency operations in support of Operation INHERENT RESOLVE.
The workout included 200-meter sprints and 51 pull ups, box jumps, dips, sit-ups, and burpees.
"Please remember those who have given their all and to honor them by going outside your comfort zone and pushing yourself to greater limits. Complaining during a Hero work out of the day is not authorized," retired Chief Master Sgt. Michael Ziegler said.
