The EOD 131 Memorial Workout is in honor of the 131 EOD Technicians in the Navy, Army, Marine Corps and Air Force who have made the ultimate sacrifice since 9/11. All proceedes benefit the EOD Warrior Foundation non-profit 501 (c) 3 . This year we add Marine SSGT David B. Lyon to the list of 130 which now brings the total to 131. SSGT Lyons died of wounds received in action while deployed in 2010 to Afghanistan in Support of Operation Enduring Freedom. The workout is therefore renamed the EOD 131 Memorial Workout in his memory.

On this Veteran’s Day, we honor those who have served and those that are currently serving and those that have passed before us. Take some time today to thank a Veteran for their sacrifice for this great Nation.
