On Friday the Academy will be hosting the 30th anniversary reunion for the Iranian Hostages, 52 of whom spent 444 days in captivity. West Point was the first place in the United States where these hostages were taken after their release in 1981. A ceremony will be held mid-morning on Friday to honor the strength, resolve and spirit which they all displayed throughout their captivity. As such, classes on Friday will begin an hour early. Because of this, CrossFit Friday is temporarily CrossFit Thursday. So, get your weight vests (IBA with some plates) on and get ready for an early Thursday morning escape planned by our very own Justin Weeks.
