Tommy

Gunnery Sergeant Thomas Sullivan gave his life on July 16, 2015, in sacrifice for his fellow Marines.

 

"Tommy"

13 Rounds for time:

100m Sand Bag Carry (50m down & 50m back)

7- Strict Pull ups

16- Sand Bag over the shoulder tosses

15- Sand Bag Squats

*boots and utes optional

 

“Tommy always had that superhero idea in his head.” -Dianne Mullin

Tommy was the kind of man that every Junior Marine around would not only aim to be like but would also turn to when they needed something either on or off duty. Sullivan, with a number of combat tours, one of which during the Battle of Fallujah, and two purple hearts, maintained his esprit de corps and focus on our most basic principles as Marines: taking care of each other. This is something that is often lost in the rest of our culture but is one of the most powerful tools we have as Marines and leaders. Junior Marines eat chow first, hit the rack first, and are taken care of first. This is how Gunny Sullivan lived his life on or off duty. There is nothing that he wouldn’t do for his Marines.

His last opportunity to put others before himself came on July 16, 2015, while serving as Battery Gunnery Sergeant in Chattanooga, TN. On this day, the reservse center came under fire.

“He could have jumped the fence but he didn’t” - Dianne Mullin

 Tommy went into action looking for a way out, not for himself, but for his Marines. He started to lead them to safety and after fearing that he would lead them to the gun man, changed his course of action. He knew that they needed to jump the fence. Sullivan lead 13 Marines and Sailors over the fence before returning to the office in an attempt to provide support. This is ultimately where he fell. He was one of four Marines and one sailor that were killed on that day.

Although the events that unfolded that day were unexpected, I don’t think anyone was surprised that Tommy was the man to take charge and make sure that his men got to safety. Putting himself before others seemed like the norm for Sullivan. He was a beloved son, brother, grandson, nephew, uncle, friend, Marine, and so much more to a lot of people. The comic book loving Dropkick Murphys fan will always be remembered fondly. One of his best friends Jack Hendrix remembers his laugh more than anything, saying “it was infectious and one of a kind.”

Gunny Sullivan is now at rest as the hero he always was and will always be remembered as.

….and for that, MarineWOD salutes you, Tommy, and you will never be forgotten.

3rd Annual Romeo Athletics Charity Marathon Row

3rd Annual Romeo Athletics Charity Marathon Row

Screen Shot 2019-04-28 at 2.16.46 PM.png

On Saturday, June 22, 2019, we are hosting our 3rd Annual Charity Marathon Row!  Numerous teams of five people will be rowing a marathon (42,195 meters) at Romeo Athletics in Enfield, CT, to raise awareness and funds to help in the fight against ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis).  All proceeds will go directly to Tucker Wood, a family member of the Romeo Athletics community who is currently battling ALS.  ALS is a terminal neurodegenerative disease that affects 6,000 new patients each year, and leaves them prisoners in their own bodies.  


Tucker’s Story:

On July 7, 2016, at only 33 years old, Tucker was diagnosed with ALS.  The diagnosis came as a complete shock as his only symptom was cramping in his wrist which he attributed to a soccer injury. The doctor shared the unfortunate news that not only is there no cure and extremely limited FDA-approved treatment for ALS, but the life expectancy after diagnosis is 2-5 years.

Tucker has been a preschool teacher for the past 12 years while also pursuing his love of photography and music in his spare time. He loves to travel, cook, camp and spend time with friends and family.  His happiest and top priority though, is being a father. Despite the diagnosis, Tucker and his wife, Lauren, welcomed their beautiful, healthy and happy daughter, Eloise, in February of 2018.

ALS affects each person differently and for Tucker it began by affecting the use of his left arm and has now impacted his right arm, as well. To date, Tucker has minimal use of his arms and lacks fine motor skills within his hands. His legs are still considered strong, however, his gait is affected because of his other ALS symptoms, thus making him prone to trips and falls.  Due to his progression, this spring represents his last year of teaching and he will be unable to work moving forward.

Without a cure, the inevitable progression will continue to limit Tucker's independence. He currently relies on his wife or others for simple daily tasks such as dressing and feeding himself.  Unfortunately, driving and even walking will soon be activities of the past. All of the proceeds from the Charity Row will go directly the Wood family to alleviate the mounting medical bills and the expensive costs associated with Tucker’s day-to-day living and necessary care.

The estimated yearly medical cost associated with caring for an ALS patient in the US is $150,000-$200,000.  ALS, like cancer, can affect anyone. Young or old. Male or female. Every race, religion, and socio-economic class. It doesn’t discriminate based on who you know, where you grew up, or who your parents were. Nearly 90% of ALS patients have no family history of the disease.
