The Gamberi Memorial Wod:
KATV – Breaking News, Weather and Razorback Sports
The Gamberi Memorial Wod is a CrossFit Event to honor the 5 soldiers of the 101ST Sustainment Brigade that were killed in action April 16 2011. While serving in Afghanistan, their mission was to train the Afghan National Army in different aspects of military operations. They had been working with the Afghan National Army for about 4 months when the attack happened. A suicide bomber entered the building dressed as a member of the Afghan National Army during the morning role call and pulled the cord attached to multiple grenades. The bomber took the lives of 7 people that day, 4 of which were the soldiers from the 101ST Sustainment Brigade. The 5th died later that week at a hospital in Germany.
