CrossFit TNT wants to give many thanks to all of those who have served in the U.S. military. We are honored to workout with some of those Veterans each day.
“While only one day of the year is dedicated solely to honoring our veterans, Americans must never forget the sacrifices that many of our fellow countrymen have made to defend our country and protect our freedoms.”
Deb Owens- U.S. Army
“I served in the active duty Army for 20 years as a truck driver and recruiter.

“I joined the navy in March on 2002. After boot camp in Great Lakes, IL I was selected to be a member of the Navy ceremonial guard in Washington D.C. while there I participated in official navy ceremonies, including the 60th anniversary of the battle of midway. But i mostly was there to participate in the burial of far too many sailors at Arlington.
After D.C. I went to Pensacola, FL for my career specific training in the field of aviation structural and hydraulics repair. When i competed my training I was sent to Whidbey Island, WA where I worked on the EA6-B "Prowler" for the next four years. The prowler is am electronic counter attack aircraft, basically it makes wireless electronics not work. Everything from cell phones to gps, to a remote controlled toy car, or in our case, remote controlled ied's.
While working on the prowler i went on two cruises, which included hitting ports in Hawaii, Singapore, Malaysia, Japan, Hong Kong, Australia, and Dubai.
After active duty i spent three years in the reserves in Maine and eventually Washington DC. While in Maine i worked on the C-130 aircraft, which is a cargo plane used for transporting troops and equipment. And when the base in Maine closed i worked on the prowler again in DC.”
I joined the Army August 2nd 2001 and went to Basic and Mechanic School at Ft. Jackson, SC. I then left there in 2002 and was stationed at Ft.
