Maj. Gen. Richard Clarke performs a pull-up ... pic by Staff Sgt. Javier Orona

Maj. Gen. Richard Clarke, commander of the 82nd Airborne Division, performs a pull-up while conducting functional fitness training, Apr. 14, at Fort Bragg, N.C. Leadership from throughout the Division gathered at Towle Stadium to promote team building through exercise and mentorship

Yeah he looks like a classic paratrooper.  Skinny as fuck and probably can't lift more than 100 pounds...but now that I've gotten the service rivalry bullshit outta the way .... the Major General showed up to what seems like one of his Brigade Combat Teams doing the Army's version of the Combat Fitness Test.

As far as the number of pullups he did?  Its irrelevant.  He could have done three and then jumped off the bar.  The point is he showed up, participated and didn't do a drive by that would have everyone jumping thru hoops for three days before his visit.

I don't know you Clarke, but well done.
