After years of complaints from sailors, the Navy has finally relaxed some of its requirements and issued new physical fitness standards this past week. "Wait," say the old veterans, "we complained about fitness standards but we manned up and got the job done. These kids are SOFT!" The Navy begs to disagree and claims that it's trying to "strike a better balance between health and physical readiness." The new standards recognize a variety of body types, including weightlifters and women and aims to keep the Navy from losing so many sailors to a regimented and outdated testing process. What's your take on these changes? Sound off in this Under the Radar post.
