Today we dedicate our workout to yet another fallen solider, an Ex Royal Marine. Mike White sadly took his own life on the 23rd of September this year in Thailand. This isn't the first time that I have experienced such a sad loss. Questions as whether to repeated exposure to difficult situations whilst out in theatres of war are responsible for such an event. Below is a piece written by one of his former Royal Marines colleagues. Rest In Peace Mike.

Mike, a son, a brother, an uncle, and a good friend to many. At a young age he had achieved more then most will ever do. Having left the Army as a corporal, he passed Royal Marines Commando training, and subsequently served in Afghanistan and on other deployments with 40 commando, always well respected by his peers. He was professional in everything he did, and always strived to do everything to the best of his ability. More importantly he was a great friend and extremely loyal, he would always put others first. He hated letting anyone down regardless of who they were, nothing was too much trouble for Mike when helping others. Even from a young age he taught a lot of things to a lot of people from his positive attitude and many people looked up to him. His passing away has left a hole in many lives, but the good memories will always live on. RIP Brother.
