Do you see now why I'm constantly harping about being in shape before you even sign the contract? For cryin' out loud -you only need a 50% to pass the APFT in BCT! Just to get to RIP you have to have a 70% & to stay in the Rangers an 80%.

A person who can delay their entry for 365 days has absolutely no excuse to not be able to pass the PT test before they ship for basic.

Shame on his Recruiter for not mentoring him & insuring he could make it through BCT! Do you realize how many young people I've prepared for Army & Marine Corps Basic, my son included & I don't even get paid for that.

Maybe I'll send the Army a bill.
