Train like Marines

Train like Marines

Ok,
I work on an air force base, and I see a lot of different things.
For the most part I do have some concerns.
I thought this would be interesting for the news letter

Air Force times newspaper for May 4, 2009.

They say “imitation is the sincerest form of flattery!” Well they can simulate our training all they want to. But at the end of the day they still won’t be like us, let alone be US.

We are a breed all our own! The article and others in the issue, keeps referring to Marines, being the best, toughest, well organized, knowing the objective to achieve and not letting interfere with obtaining the objective.

That we are also in the forefront of designing and implementing new training techniques. The article even lists some of the PFT we must do to pass (sit-ups, pushup. pull ups, runs etc)

So I included a picture of the front page of the current issue. Bottom line “Airmen want to train like Marines”

From what I see day to day, 80% wouldn’t pass the tests. Semper Fi
