In an effort to get to the bottom of this mystery, officers from the Fortitude Valley Police Station will be in attendance at each of our CrossFit group sessions tomorrow to take finger prints and DNA swabs from everyone in attendance . . . Please extend every courtesy and assistance to the investigating officers . . .

U.S. Navy Lt. J. Wesley β€œWes” Van Dorn, 29, of Greensboro, North Carolina, died on Jan. 8, 2014, of injuries sustained in a helicopter crash off the coast of Virginia. He was a member of Helicopter Mine Countermeasures Squadron 14 at the Naval Air Station in Norfolk, Virginia.

Van Dorn was a well-rounded and skilled athlete. According to his friends, he "prided himself on his ability to lift huge weight with the big guys and run with the smaller ones.β€œ

Van Dorn is survived by his wife, Nicole; sons, Jaxton and Maddox; parents, Mark and Susan; brother, Max; and sister, Cara.

 

Defeat never comes to any man until he admits it.
