Hero WOD #5: Major Dale
Background: Gulia Dale III was born on April 30, 1960 in Bridgeton, NJ. Directly after high school, he joined the active duty US Army and served until 1982, when he joined the National Guard and served another 25 years, retiring in 2004. He received his commission at Seton Hall University achieving the rank of Major. He was activated after September 11, 2001 and continued to serve his nation, including a tour of several months of active duty in Iraq.
Dale suffered with PTSD, which became apparent to his family during his return from several tours in Iraq. 30% of military personnel who served in Iraq and Afghanistan have mental health challenges. Dale was one of those veterans.
Family members said they believe fireworks from neighboring homes may have caused flashbacks of combat that triggered a mental health crisis, which led his wife Karen Daletoto call the police for help. Three Newton police officers arrived outside Dale’s home. Their body-worn cameras were activated and recorded the events that transpired. A rapid exchange of commands were shouted at Dale, and then within moments of arriving on the scene, two officers fired their guns, killing the 61-year-old decorated war veteran outside his home. He was killed on July 4, 2021 at the age of 61.
He is survived by his wife Karen, two daughters, Tori and Julia, several sisters, Pamela, Lorraine, Cynthia, Sandra, Valerie and Tara.

8th Annual Memorial WOD for “Officer Sicknick”
13 Rounds for Time, of:
- 1 Devils Press (45# DB)
- 6 DB Thrusters (45# DB)
- 21 Double-unders
Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick was assaulted by insurrectionists seeking to overthrow the US government during the Capitol attack on January 6, 2021. He succumbed to his injuries and died the next day in the hospital. He joined the Capitol Police in 2008.
Officer Sicknick is from South River, NJ. A 1997 graduate of Middlesex County Vocational and Technical School, Sicknick "wanted to be a police officer his entire life," according to his family. He joined the New Jersey Air National Guard the year he graduated. Sicknick deployed to Saudi Arabia in 1999 in support of Operation Southern Watch. After the 9/11 terrorist attacks, he served in Kyrgyzstan in support of the war in Afghanistan.
As with most Hero WODs, the numbers have meaning. In this case, Officer Sicknick was killed by Domestic Terrorists attempting to overthrow the US Government on Jan 6th, 2021 - hence the 1 / 6/ 21 format. The 13 Rounds is representative of his 13 years of service, and the 45# "dumbbell" is representative of the former social media / twice impeached former president of the United States who was ultimately responsible for Officer Sicknick being attacked on January 6th.
