Chesty Puller is rolling over in his grave again

At nearly 50, in both age and waist size, our fearless leader @administrator may finally have a chance to qualify as a Marine infantry officer.

OBNOXIOUS EDIT FROM THE ADMINISTRATOR:  I’ll have you know that I am a trim athletic factual 38 waist.

    “That was a principal driver behind us making modifications to the course,” Bohm said. But, he argues, “it was not about lowering attrition, it was about making students more successful to complete the course.”

    It’s for the girls. . .

      Except, these could lead to stress fractures. . .

      hike that was changed is the 15-km hike, which must be completed within three hours while humping 105 lbs of kit and weapons.

      The other two hikes evaluated for graduation purposes are a 7-mile hike carrying 95 lbs and a 9-mile hike carrying 105 lbs.

      The girls better get in the weight room and squat like there is no tomorrow!

    And the best of the comments:

    Kevin Dickson · Retired at Verizon Communications:
    Since women are just one of 93 different genders I don’t see why they should be given any special consideration not give to the other 92.

    We didn’t have an IOC when I went through TBS. But LT’s were being shot to fast in RVN that we worked our butts off getting done. Today it’s a lot more like a walk in the park.

    Henry Narvaez, one of my old roommates, visited our old room a couple years back when we had the reunion in Alexandria. Two LT’s in the room – both with big screen TV’s up on the walls. Wonder if those go into combat with them. We didn’t have time to watch TV. We were too tired coming in from night patrols so we just slept. Funny how times change.
