My life beyond High-school

Army (Hope ball)

What I want to do

1.) I would want to go into the army when I get out of high-school and I want to be in the Army Reserves.

2.) The organization I'd go for would be the Army Reserves because I could dedicate my time into the army on certain times and I would be protected by Federal Laws.

3.) The Army's Basic Training Physical Fitness Test is a three-event physical performance test used to assess endurance. It is used to measure a your physical strengths, abilities, and cardio-respiratory fitness.

You are required to pass the Basic Training APFT to graduate boot camp and continue on to Advance Infantry Training.

The three PFT events are two minutes of push-ups, two minutes of sit-ups, and a timed 2-mile run. Your results from each event are assigned a score. Your age, gender and the amount of repetitions or time elapsed for each event determines your score. Unlike other military endurance tests the APFT is normally performed in normal workout gear. To graduate boot camp you must score 150 points or higher with at least 50 points in each event.

4.) Serving in the Army Reserve means you'll still have a civilian job, but you'll train each month close to home and complete a two-week training exercise once a year. This way you will be trained and ready if called. And, of course, you'll be able to bring invaluable experience back to your civilian ministry.

5.) My obstacles that I will face is, having to leave my home town for training and having the right athletics and training before hand.

6.) I can over-come my obstacles by keeping in touch with everyone who while I'm away and I can start working out and running to make sure I'm ready to go.
