This hero workout is dedicated to PFC Nicholas Scott “Cookie” Cook, 3rd Platoon, Battle Company, 2nd Battalion, 503rd Infantry Regiment, 173rd Airborne Brigade Combat Team, US Army, who was killed in action on March 7, 2010, while conducting counter-insurgency operations in Kunar Province, Afghanistan.
In letters read at the service, Capt. Benjamin Nagy and 2nd Lt. Kevin McDonald wrote that during the assault, Cook’s unit was pinned down. Cook, already under attack, moved from cover to a less-secure location to provide better support for his comrades. “You selflessly exposed yourself,” wrote McDonald, the platoon leader. “Many of us here today simply would not be here” without Cook’s action. PFC Cook was posthumously awarded the Silver Star Medal for his selfless bravery that day.
The workout was created by Jonathan Noonan together with all the members of PFC Cook’s platoon.
