LTG Charles D Luckey talks about the incompatibility of extremist groups and service in America's Army Reserve. New version has direction for commanders--including holding Soldiers accountable.
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. Gen. Charles D. Luckey, chief of Army Reserve and commanding general, U.S. Army Reserve Command, sends his message to the field about the Army Combat Fitness Test, the newest way the Army will evaluate the physical fitness and endurance of its Soldiers.
The Army of 2028 is the Secretary of the Army's and Chief of Staff's guidance for building a lethal army to meet the nation's needs over the next ten years.
