Army senior leaders have approved a new strenuous fitness test designed to better prepare Soldiers for combat tasks, reduce injuries and lead to ample cost savings across the service. The six-event readiness assessment, called the Army Combat Fitness Test, is intended to replace the current three-event Army Physical Fitness Test, which has been around since 1980. Beginning October 2020, all Soldiers will be required to take the new gender- and age-neutral test. Before that, field testing set to begin this October will allow the Army to refine the test, with initial plans for up to 40,000 Soldiers from all three components to see it.

Lt. Col. Tina Holloway Discusses Something Bigger
LTC Tina Holloway is the 3d Medical Command (Deployment Support) CLINOPS, Division Medical Readiness Coordinator, and she is this week’s 3d MC(DS) Spotlight for Black History Month.

From a very young age the question of my purpose and what I should be doing for the greater good of others has been a question l have asked and answered and asked again. My initial narrow focus was on my purpose as a black woman to be the first in a family of 7 to go to college and settle in a profession that provided a level of security for myself and family that was comfortable.
Feb. 13, 2020 - Lt. Col. Tina Holloway is the 3d Medical Command (Deployment Support) CLINOPS, Division Medical Readiness Coordinator, and she is this week’s 3d MC(DS) Spotlight for Black History Month. My contribution to Black History is taking the opportunity to be a part of something bigger and greater than myself. I believe there is no special skill or education required to be great; just a desire to give more than yourself. As stated by the late Martin Luther King, “Everybody can be great because everybody can serve”. The opportunity to provide service and be a part of a cause bigger than myself is the most rewarding and gratifying gift l have ever been given. I did not realize that my journey to find my life’s purpose would lead me to a path filled with great honor, humility, and appreciation for those who have made their utmost priority of service to others so meaningful.
