Re: OT, OT but......


Well, Neal is not muscled-out...his problem is a hereditary one...tall,
skinny and gangly. He is almost 6' 7" and skinny (my brother is 6' 9"
and skinny, my 16 year old daughter is 6' and skinny). He can do the
push ups and all that, but when it comes to doing chin ups...it is
really hard for somebody with loooooooonnnngggg arms and a long body to
do a lot of those. And I did tell him what you said Judy...to just focus
on the "one" and to not panic. As a mother...if he didn't pass I
wouldn't get too upset about it with this war going on...but I know that
this is all he has ever wanted to do and now it's down to the nitty
gritty. *sigh* So...I lit my candle and said my prayers for him.

Basic because his legs were too well-muscled and touched the floor during
pushups. He had several tries and finally they gave him a different way to
do it. They passed him out of basic w/out completing the PT test and he had
to keep trying. They did this because they wanted to keep him. He finally
did pass.
