In honor of Air Force Major Adrianna Vorderbruggen and Pride Month, Guerrilla Fitness has designed this Hero WOD.
Maj. Vorderbruggen was 36 years old and part of the USAF’s Office of Special Investigations, also known as OSI. She is not only believed to be the first openly gay female active duty service member to die in combat, but she is also the first openly gay USAF member to do so and the first female OSI agent killed while executing their duties.
Coincidentally, the Department of Defense announced Vorderbruggen’s death on the five year anniversary the official repeal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell. Vorderbruggen was among the first in the U.S. military to get married after the end of the controversial policy, pioneering a new path for gay and lesbian soldiers, sailors, airman and marines that have had to live a guarded and often split life in fear of being kicked out of services.
For years Vorderbruggen worked to try and repeal the discriminatory policy. Vorderbruggen leaves behind a wife, Heather, and a young son, Jacob.
