After the September 11th attacks on the US, Jeremy joined the Navy and became a SEAL. Ben, already in the Army, became a member of the legendary Green Berets. Beau followed his brothers and joined the Marine Corps Infantry. Together they served over 1,600 days in Iraq and Afghanistan. Tragically Jeremy was killed by a suicide bomber in Afghanistan on December 30, 2009. Just over two years later, Ben was killed in a firefight in Afghanistan on January 10, 2012. Beau remained on active duty in the United States Marine Corps.

Testimonials

*When I first started Crossfit Lighthouse I was at my heaviest weight of 210lbs. I realized how unhappy I was with myself and decided to make a change. I wanted and needed a healthier lifestyle, so I contacted my best friend and now coach Amanda. She encouraged me to join Crossfit and reassured me that I would succeed. She gave me the push that I needed to take the next step. One of the hardest things for me was just showing up. However, once I was there I instantly fell in love with the coaches, DEEZ, people and the environment. From then on I have grown more confident and have lost over 70 lbs. every morning I go to Crossfit I push myself harder and joining was one the best decisions I have ever made. I have participated in races, which is something I never thought I could do. Cmc, savage race, and tough mudder are three of my proudest accomplishments. I never would of been able to achieve any of this without my "family" at Crossfit lighthouse!*
