    I'm glad to hear the Navy isn't gundecking PT anymore.

    It used to be that way, and to some small extent, still is. But times are changing for the better and the mentality these days is get in shape, stay in shape.

    Whats sad is I'm in better shape than some of the kids who are 10-15 years younger than me.

    Think the "Sandbox Sailor" possibility is affecting this?

    I don't know first hand, but if you want my opinion I'd say yes.

    I think these Sailors would agree:



    060626-N-7987M-028 Camp Lejeune, N.C. (June 26, 2006) - Sailors assigned to Riverine Group One (RIVRON-1) work together during an intense exercise to clear a simulated hostile town. RIVRON-1 is training with Marines at the School of Infantry on board Marine Base Camp Lejeune, North Carolina, in preparation for deployment.

    Yup.
    The days of sailors saying " I am in shape, round is a shape" are rapidily coming to an end.
    Since the Marines and Army are stretched thin, with alot of guys going back for their fourth or fifth tour; there's plenty of sailors volunteering to go to Initial Augmentation jobs in Afghanistan and Iraq.

    That's good to hear. All this news about the Navy shaping up makes me happy.

    Now if we can just convince the chAir Force to do pushups to more than a 45 degree angle . . .

    I was told that Air Force are only PT'd once a year, and jobs aren't guaranteed there anymore, and they threw out height to weight requirements, and when it all comes down, they'll reinstate them and it'll be stricter than the Marines so they can kick out the most people, it's too packed. The most popular job there is "load master". They load boxes and make less than UPS. That's what I was told by my recruiters, Petty Officer Bradshaw and Petty Officer Guttermuth. But perhaps we should ask Airman Kai on this one.

    I can only judge based on what I see here at the Presidio, but at least here, situps count when your elbows touch your knees and pushups are to a 45 degree angle.

    I thought about that on Wednesday when I got up at 4 20 AM to do the weekly "run till you drop" (15 minutes out and 15 back along the beach trails . . . usually get in about 4-4.5 miles total) we have. I thought about it again when I was at chow listening to their sleep-touched faces complaining at 7 AM about how bad the food is here compared to BMT.

    But then I listen to them complain about how they have weekly inspections, can't drive POVS here, have a curfew, etc etc etc, and I laugh.

    A lot.
