    I ran track in high school mostly did not have much upper body strength so i probably could not do to many when I got to boot but just like Harry 1371 stated I did pass PT and graduated that’s what matters. Bill 0331

    I think it was 15 at start of bootcamp, 25-30 at final PT test at graduation. Only saving grace was I only weighed 150-155 #. By the time I came back to CONUS in 1961, I weighed 185#.
