The Air Force was recently considering a new strategy to its PT tests. In a nutshell, it's going to give any airmen who might fail a PT test a "mulligan" and list the test as a diagnostic instead of a record test. It may possibly be allowed for an airman to list a failed test as off-the-books, but that part isn't set in stone.

The Air Force was surprisingly serious (to the other troops who use phrases like "Chair Force") about failed PT tests and other branches also have a practice test system in place. But I can't help but point out the bad optics on this one.

I mean, I get it. Any notion that the Air Force might someday consider being a fraction more lenient in comparison to the other branches or older vets will cause outrage. On the other hand, I know I would have killed for something like that back in my lower enlisted days...

Anyways, here are some memes while I ponder how much weight I've gained since getting out of the Army...
