Oh, I just bet she was "fudging" that test, amirite? ;)

Anyway, in the US military's defense, the allowance for that test is pretty generous. And the colonel in question apparently tried to intimidate her subordinates into letting her pass, which in my mind is a far greater sin than simply failing the test.

Still, I thought it was a good opportunity to highlight one of the differences between the US and Canadian militaries. Not that we're all a bunch of fat slobs or anything, but we're not *quite* so anal about it. We still have fitness tests and PT (though probably not as much PT as we should), but nothing based on appearance alone.

Brother, you gotta drop some embedded links in your author's notes, because I sure love me some "Army Sux" stories.

I mean, all those guys do is go for runs and then go camping. How hard can it be for them to maintain physical standards?!
