Soldiers Do Box Jumps During Memorial Mash
Matthew Gaddy, right, and Zach Hill, do box jumps during the Memorial Mash in memory of U.S. Air Force Chief Master Sgt. Nick McCaskill on Camp Lemonnier, Djibouti, April 6, 2014. Members of the 82nd Expeditionary Rescue Squadron (ERQS) organized the mash in remembrance of the one year anniversary of McCaskill’s death in Afghanistan. More than 70 people, split into 18 teams, competed in the event, which consisted of a total of 1,010 repetitions between 11 exercises. The repetitions symbolized McCaskill’s operating initials, a unique “XX.” Gaddy, a U.S. Air Force senior airman, and Hill, a technical sergeant, are both 82nd ERQS pararescuemen.
