Spoke to my son last night. He loves the Army. My son said that being fit is crucial before you go. Seems that staying in shape is always important thru ROTC and then the Army. They are running four 7 minute miles each morning. I think that is a target time. He been keeping up with this Captain who is really fast. Ruck marches, etc. He is doing well with that. A few are are struggling but most are good to go. Spent this week on weapons training. The Cadre have been impressive. Really good people.
