'The American population wants a fit force,' said Command Sgt. Maj. Michael L. Gragg, of the U.S. Army
Center for Initial Military Training, during an Oct. 16 non-commissioned officer professional development seminar at the Post Theater. 'They expect you to be lean, trim, fit and ready to fight at a moment's notice, ready to run a million miles for the sake and defense of this constitution in this nation.' During the development, Gragg discussed a new combat readiness test which will pilot in October of next year. The test will be gender neutral and based on MOS and grade.
