Hero Workout "Griff"



Hero Workout | "Griff"

In honor of USAF SSgt Travis L. Griffin, 28, who was killed April 3, 2008 in the Rasheed district of Baghdad by an IED strike to his vehicle.

Travis L. Griffin was blessed with patience, stamina and an “internal motor” that kept him going hours into a job, said Capt.Kevin Eberhart. “Everyone else would be dragging, but it seemed like he was never worn out.”

“His lot in this world,” Eberhart added, “was to train people. He used humor, sometimes self-deprecating humor, to get his points across.”

“Most deploy for four to six months. He actually volunteered to go on a 365-day tour. He was one of the folks that really stepped up to do not just a very dangerous and demanding mission, but one that was going to last a lot longer.”

Griff is survived by his wife, Krista, and son, Elijah, 5.
