AO: THE YACHT CLUB
WEATHER: COLD AND WET
THIS WORKOUT WAS DEDICATED TO THE CHIEF SPECIAL WARFARE OPERATOR (SEAL) MATTHEW D. MASON.
Chief Special Warfare Operator (SEAL) Matthew D. Mason, 37, of Kansas City, Mo., enlisted in October 1999, according to the Navy.37, of Kansas City, Mo.; assigned to an East Coast-based SEAL team; died Aug. 6, 2011 in Wardak province, Afghanistan, of wounds suffered when the CH-47 Chinook helicopter in which he was riding was shot down.
A severe arm injury during fighting in Fallujah in 2004 didn’t keep Matthew Mason off the Iraq War battlefield. Nor did it dull the competitive fire of the avid runner and former high school athlete from outside Kansas City.
Within five months of losing part of his left arm, absorbing shrapnel and suffering a collapsed lung, Mason competed in a triathlon. He soon returned to his SEAL unit.
“He could have gotten out of combat,” said family friend Elizabeth Frogge. “He just insisted on going back.”
Mason, the father of two toddler sons, grew up in Holt, Mo., and played football and baseball at Kearney High School. He graduated from Northwest Missouri State University in 1998. His wife, who is expecting their third child — another boy — also attended Northwest Missouri.
