This topic is significant in every branch, and is meant to be the new standard to make sure service members look proper in uniform. Here are some comments put out there on the topic. We would like to hear your opinion.
USAF MSgt retired: “Once again the waist measurement is a joke. I don’t care. I have seen people who are over the waist limit and run, push and sit their ass off. He is good man for stepping down and abiding by the rules. So what ever happen to the ten day retest. Umm three inches in ten days is not that hard to loose. How is it that there are Commanders out there that don’t run or walk and still command? I am so glad I retired.”
USAF MSgt: “Col Bush was my Wing Commander. He is 6’4 inches tall. One of the best commanders I ever had. He did not look bad in a uniform. There were no underlying factors. I believe it was Air Mobility Command’s push to make sure that it was understood that no one was exempt from the PT standards. The Air Force lost a great leader that day.”
USMC MSgt: “I can’t really offer a valid opinion on this, because I stopped reading somewhere around his 42 inch waist line. However, I would like to say, that this pig needs to find a new job, like maybe in the army, or as a civilian contractor. He’s not a civilian, and he should not be allowed to live by civilian standards.”
