PTE Galagher & LCPL McDonald were serving together with the Special Operations Task Group in Afghanistan when they were tragically killed in a helicopter crash on 30 August, 2012. McDonald enjoyed the heavy lifts such as front squats, and was known to swing up a kettlebell. Strength was his game. Therefore, the front squat and kettlebell swings are for him. PTE Galagher was a man who loved his metabolic conditioning workouts. He was fast, strong, and quick to find a pull up bar for his fitness programming. The pull-ups and 200m run are for him.
