Elite @crossfit athletes demonstrated their determination to win at The Battleground, an event in the 2018 @crossfitgames

Shoulder to shoulder, we win our Nation's battles. When you’ve earned the title Marine, you become part of a legacy steeped in tradition, where the Marines to the left and right of you become more than who you serve with.

“What makes the USMC unique is the fighting spirit that’s found in each and every Marine - a similar fighting spirit is found in CrossFitters, which makes you unique in the fitness world.” MajGen James Bierman, Commanding General of Marine Corps Recruiting Command, introduces a unique partnership with @crossfit at an event that included CrossFit CMO and Marine veteran Jimi Letchford.

Each and every day, we ceremoniously raise our Nation's flag to honor the sacrifices of those who served before us, to reflect on its meaning, and to bring the dawn of a new day to hone our fighting spirit.

Each Marine plays a unique role in making sure we are ready to fight and win for our Nation.
