U.S. Army to crack down on fitness standards for Soldiers entering Professional Military Education courses after November 1st

 

Written by C. Todd Lopez
Department of Defense

U.S. ArmyWashington, D.C. – Pre-war height, weight and physical fitness standards are coming back for Soldiers entering professional military education courses on or after November 1st.

The short explanation is: if you’re heavier than you should be, or you can’t meet the Army’s physical fitness standards, you’re not going to get into the professional military education, or PME, course you’re scheduled to attend.

The standards had been waived because the Army needed as many Soldiers as possible trained for the Iraq and Afghanistan conflicts — but that is no longer the case.

Sgt. Nicholas Johnson, U.S. Forces Korea Soldier of the Year, finishes the pushup portion of the Army Physical Fitness Test during the 6th Annual Department of the Army Best Warrior Competition, Oct. 3rd, 2011, at Fort Lee, VA.
