In Remembrance of Ryan Job 3/11/81 – 9/24/2009
Ryan Job survived more than 20 firefights in Iraq. Ryan was covering a crew of about 25 SEALs when a sniper’s bullet struck him in the face.
“When I got there, it was such a catastrophic wound,” Babin said. “His whole right eye was gone.”
Ryan kept his composure, sat himself up and tried to comfort his teammates, telling them he would be OK. Ryan survived and overcame his wounds and blindness to climb Mt. Rainier with Camp Patriot in 2008, in October of the same year he successfully hunted a trophy Elk (see photos). On Sept. 24, 2009 we lost Ryan. He died as a result of a hospital error after an operation to repair his eye.
Ryan was a highly decorated Navy SEAL, a hunter, a mountaineer, a husband and a father to a daughter that he never had a chance to meet. Ryan was a great friend and inspiration to us all. Navy SEAL Chris Kyle was Ryan’s teammate and wrote The New York Times Best Seller, American Sniper, in Ryan’s honor.
Ryan’s favorite training session was below, he did it three times a week to prepare for his Camp Patriot Mt. Rainier summit:
THE RYAN JOB NAVY SEAL CHALLENGE
20 Burpees x 3 rounds (60 total) 15 Pull ups x 3 rounds (45) 60 Single Count Alternating Leg, Lunge Jumps x 3 rounds (180) 25 push ups x 3 rounds (75 total reps) 1,000 m row or 1,000 m run x 3 rounds (3,000 meters total)
The workout was tough indeed, but always remember, whenever you do a Hero WOD, those individuals gave our country everything they had and paid the ultimate price – your pain and discomfort is temporary.
