I am having trouble looking up some information on the services.

I remember what the P.T. Standards where when I was in the Army but does anybody have the standards for the other four services??? Or know where I can link to them

Not worried about flight duty or anything special like that, just the basic standards will be fine.

Apparently my mid-life crisis is starting at 30. Big grin

Just kidding.

Thanks for any help.

http://www.globemaster.de/faq/career.html is a good starting point. It has some recruiting links for all branches. I remember that I once looked up the standards for the USMC on one of the given URLs.

Don't know why you're looking but:

Marine Corps Order P6100.12
for a 30-year old guy
Minimum standards
Situps 45 max 100
Dead-Hang Pullups 3 max 20
3 mile run 29:00 max 18:00

Navy OPNAV Instruction 6110.1G
for a 30-year old guy
Minimum standards
Situps 44 max 98
Pushups 35 max 80
1.5 mile run 14:15 max 9:20

of course the standards change based on your age and whether you're a guy or gal.

I think in the Air Force after you're in (past boot camp or after you're commissioned as an officer), all you have to do is ride a stationary bike for a while and as long as your heart rate isn't too excessive and you're aren't breathing too hard, you're okay.  Smile At least that's what my roommate tells me, I have a hard time grasping that particular concept for a physical fitness test. I live in a house where one of my roommates is in the Army and my other roommate is in the Air Force and we all give each other a hard time about being in our respective services.

Cheers  Smile

Found the Air Force one:

After a set aerobic exercise (I guess it doesn't matter the reference doesn't specify what exercise to do ride a stationary bike, or run on a treadmill) , I guess you do something like a breathalyzer where the maximum oxygen uptake allowed for a 30-year old guy is 32ml/kg2.

The testing area has to be in an area that is quiet and cool between 68 and 72 deg. Testing is supposed to stop if the temp is above 75deg.

I have no idea what 32ml/kg2 of oxygen means, or how the whole fitness test is administered, but the reference is Air Force Instruction 40-501.

Hey those personel order/manual numbers give me a great point to start searching again.

Thanks.

The Air Force was just stating that stationary bike test when I was getting out of the army.

Never did understand it.

Max enlistment age and if there is an allowance for prior military service.

Yes, in Air Force boot camp, you will be issued a Trek mountain bike.  Smile/happy/getting dizzy
