    It didnt get tougher, it has STARTED moving back to the way things were.

    In the past the toughest standard was the one for the youngest service members.  But too many soldiers were failing PT tests when they were young so instead of fixing soldiers we fixed the test.  We have SLOWLY started to go back the other way.

    Who ever said the test was "gender neutral" is wrong.  There are TWO tests - Male and Female.

    It is well that war is so terrible -- lest we should grow too fond of it. Robert E. Lee
