Marines take fitness to HQMC level! FUCKING OUTSTANDING!

I'm a critic of many things that HQMC is doing.  But when they get it right I need to shout that to the rooftops too.

This is one of those things.

I have my personal suspicions on why this is being done, but put that to the side...this is long overdue.

Warrior Fitness....being Hard To Kill...being able to endure under times  of stress both mental and physical?

That's what this is all about.

What would I like to see?  I'd like to see the initiative that Colonel Armes is pushing continue and to watch the fruit that it brings.  I'd also like to see some of the administrative bullshit that came about go by the wayside.  That combat pt test is one such thing (in my opinion).  That should be part of unit pt and does not need to be formalized.  Some of the changes in the PT Test I'd like to see go away but understanding the push made by the feminists in the Corps it's unlikely.

Simplify and amplify.

That should be the goal.

Finally I'd like these ideas that Armes has and will receive to go fleet wide without the paperwork accompanying it.  Develop the stuff that will enhance performance, LIMIT injuries (I hope they understand that people will break no matter what they do and certain demographics will break at higher rates considering the exercises being recommended), and develop the proper mindset.

This little initiative might be the real war winning change we've all been looking for but even better than that it emphasizes the individual Marine instead of glamorizing a piece of kit.  Being fit and strong (mentally and physically) saves lives and kills the enemy!  "Nuff said!
