This workout is dedicated to Maxton Soviak, a Navy corpsman from Erie County, who was one of 13 Americans killed in the suicide bombing that took place at the Kabul, Afghanistan airport on August 26, 2021.
Maxton Soviak, a Berlin Heights native, who graduated from Edison High School in 2017, was killed when two suicide bombers detonated explosives near the airport gate. The attack killed 13 Americans and more than 100 Afghans, while 100 more were wounded. An affiliate of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria terror group, commonly known as ISIS, claimed responsibility for the attack.
It was through an assignment last September to assist the Marine Corps that Soviak, 22, later became stationed in Afghanistan. His previous postings had included time in Guam from April, 2018, to July, 2020.
The workout was designed by Coach Harold Aranda of CrossFit Hita (Dededo, Guam) where Maxton used to train.
