DT are the ops initials of SSgt Tim Davis, 23d Special Tactics Squadron, US Air Force, who was killed in action in Afghanistan on 20 February 2009. I had the honor of working with DT at the 23 STS at Hurlburt Field, FL, and it is truly an honor to introduce him to you so that you might know the man behind the name of today’s workout. Of all the operators with whom I’ve worked, Tim was one of the most inquisitive. He listened intently and digested every detail of information about the situation in Afghanistan that he could get. He was a Combat Controller, one of a few elite warriors operating as the Air Force’s little-known ground special operations component. He trained and fought alongside his Army Special Forces brothers, and at a young age on his first deployment earned the respect of his older peers. During that deployment, he survived enemy fire and shrapnel wounds, determined to make a difference against the oppression of the Taliban – and to make it home in time for the birth of his son. He made it. Between deployments, Tim furthered his reputation in the unit for being one of the brightest young minds in the field. I remember thinking to myself as I listened to him ask all the right questions that his thirst for an edge would make him a Chief someday soon. The day he left for the field, I looked at him and at the rest of my ST brothers and prayed for each one of them to return safely to us and to their families. I’ll never forget waking up that morning two years ago to the news that we had lost DT. The night of his funeral, over toasts and cigars, we finally came to realize why he had been taken from us so young – it was so that we all will always appreciate what we have and what we’re fighting for. DT will remain forever the ultimate American hero, a true quiet professional warrior. We do this workout today to honor him and his strength of mind and body – CS
