Soldier Performs Dead Lift During Memorial Mash
Eric Beougher performs a dead lift during the Memorial Mash in honor of U.S. Air Force Chief Master Sgt. Nick McCaskill on Camp Lemonnier, Djibouti, April 6, 2014. Members of the 82nd Expeditionary Rescue Squadron 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.” Beoughe, a U.S. Air Force airman first class, is a member of the 449th Air Expeditionary Group security forces detachment.
