Nick Wilson, 1 of the 130 EOD Techs that have lost their lives since 9/11.

 

Saturday October 4th Verve will be hosting the EOD 130 Memorial WOD. This WOD was brought to our attention by a Verve athlete. When he emailed asking if we would host, he attached a letter I would like to share: 

The WOD is named after the 130 EOD Techs that have lost their lives since 9/11. This WOD has particular meaning for me because several of my friends are on that list. I don’t want to take up too much time relaying old stories, but perhaps one story will help set the context.

Nick Wilson and I were friends and teammates operating in a 3-man team in and around Fallujah. Our primary responsibilities were disarming IEDs (Improvised Explosive Devices), conducting post blast analyses, destroying weapons so that they couldn’t be used against American and allied troops, and going out on raids when requested by a “shooter” unit to disarm booby traps. On February 12, 2006 Nick, Jason, and I responded to an IED on Route Iron that had been called in by an infantry unit. After neutralizing the primary device, Nick found a wire running off into the distance that could potentially have been connected to another IED. With 1 man trailing him for security purposes, Nick began tracing the wire into a field to ensure that no further threat remained. The type of wire that was used was incredibly thin and difficult to see. As Nick approached a berm, he temporarily lost sight of the wire with the changing angle of the sun. At that moment Nick spotted 2″ of antenna sticking out of the ground. As it turned out, the wire running into the field was simply a decoy, and the real threat was 2 remotely controlled IEDs that had been buried in the berm. Being too close to back out in time and concerned for the safety of the shooter that had trailed him, Nick attacked the IED that he had spotted (one would remain intact and have to be disarmed by another team member). As he was reaching down to try to disarm the device, the trigger man detonated the IED killing Nick instantly.

My intent in telling this story is not to glorify war because it is a horrendous experience. Additionally, I do not intend to drape us with sorrow and grief. I intend for this to serve as a celebration and affirmation of life. Nick was a little guy who didn’t look like much, but he was courageous and daring beyond measure. He was always the first in the fight and rolled with the heart of lion. Beyond that he was amazingly creative and inventive and loved to laugh. He would teach me and the other new guys in a way that forced us to experience things for ourselves, which made us better in the end.

There are times when you can only gauge the impact of something when you experience its absence. When we called Nick’s wife and heard her screams, we knew how much joy and light had been taken out of her life. Still, I know for a fact that Nick would have made the same choices over again if he had to do it over. He was the type of person who thought not of himself, only of those he could protect. If he were here today, he sure as shit would not be doing a WOD, haha, but he would find a bond of spirit with those who give all they have to be better tomorrow than they are today. He was never out of the fight, and I am deeply honored to have been his friend. NICK WILSON; KIA 12 FEB 06; ROUTE IRON; FALLUJAH, IRAQ.”

This WOD is being used to raise money for the EOD Warrior Foundation. It is a partner workout. You can register for the WOD by clicking here, registration is $50 and includes a t-shirt.
