Arminius Murph Memorial Day 2018

On Saturday the 26th of May, we organized the first Arminius Murph Memorial at ReWind Strength & Conditioning.

Why a Memorial event?

Of course to remember those who have given the ultimate sacrifice, but also because, in my opinion, the awareness of the sacrifices Warriors are making on a daily basis and the effect it has on the families involved is much to low in today’s society. Especially in the Netherlands, we have a strong mentality not to speak up to much, because it is ‘not done’. And of course, it is good to be a very quiet professional, but one of the consequences is, that almost nobody knows what is going on in the shadows, to keep them safe.. Even in the Netherlands, yes.Those Warriors go to extreme lengths, to do their job, and sometimes this will create problems for the Operator or their family. That’s why we decided on a Memorial event to remember, but also to give attention to those still serving, and to raise money and awareness for the new DUTCH SPECIAL OPERATIONS CHARITY FUNDS

    Great stuff! Very cool that you’ve managed to organize it all and it seems like there were plenty of people attending. The donation is obviously a massive sign of support!
