In preparation for doing our first APFT a reminder was noted, this is not a Pass/Fail. This is a benchmark with which we gauge ourselves and improvements made in our fitness. Although this is you against you remember the team is there supporting each of you, No Man Left Behind, No Man Left the Same.  I’m impressed with the changes I’ve noticed in many of the PAX. Hard work and dedication for sure. I also want to thank each and every one of you for continuing to push me, it doesn’t go unnoticed > Thank You

Also, this is the APFT I was trained on. I understand there are other versions out there. If nothing else, we know how to Modify as Necessary.
