This is from our own CrossFit Southie member Lisa Bolos:
I just wanted to share this. I went through ROTC with Brian and his mom taught nursing at our school. It really was difficult to learn of his death. When we all joined ROTC around the start of the war, I don’t think we really thought that we would ever lose any of our classmates. Thanks for letting me share.
