We are honored to be able to host the annual SMALL Hero WOD at CrossFit Off the Grid to honor and remember Staff Sgt. Marc J. Small on Saturday, February 18th, 2017. Marc was a Special Forces Operational Detachment-Alpha team medical sergeant assigned to Company A, 1st Battalion, 3rd Special Forces Group (Airborne) in the United States Army. On February 12, 2009 Marc was killed while serving his country in Afghanistan.
U.S. Army Staff Sergeant Marc Small was 29 years old when he gave his life for our freedom. Marc died from wounds sustained when insurgents attacked his unit in Afghanistan. Marc planned on marrying Amanda Charney (founder of Small Steps in Speech) when he returned from Afghanistan. Amanda is a school based speech and language pathologist specializing in early childhood development and developmental disorders within the realm of speech and language. Marc had dreams of Amanda opening her own private practice and came up with the name, “Small Steps in Speech” to symbolize her soon to be last name along with the small steps children must take to build their communication skills.
