Let's Go to Paris, Parris Island that is!

I was not in the Marines or am not R. Lee Ermey, but I was in the Army. When I started in the military, I was always looking for good reference material to help me begin my journey. One of the most stressful parts of the military, to me anyway, was doing Physical Training (PT) and passing the PT test. I started running early as I was in delayed entry. I always thought it would be helpful to others to give them some of the reference material that I never had. You should get plenty of info from this website in not only doing the Marines PT test, but also passing it with flying colors! You don't want to go into the military unprepared and this website should help you immensely! Good luck in your journey and thank you for your service!

      As a former Marine, I can tell you that this is not an easy test.

      Just wanted to point out one thing, it's Parris, not Paris (-;

      Yes, now I have an idea of what it will take to help the Marines escape combat training. lol ;) --- I'm sure it wouldn't be easy!

      If I won the lottery today, part of the winnings would go to support the brave men and women in the Corp. and their families. ~ Nice lens! ~ Blessed!

      @Thrinsdream: Fixed! Not sure what happened. The sites were still there but for some reason, it wasn't catching. It is working now. Thanks again!

      I tried to access the Ace your Marines Initial Strength Test and the USMC Physical Fitness Test but it said there was a page error, not sure whether this is anything to do with my 'puter or the page ref has changed, but loved this and not only two days ago was I seeing how many pull ups I could do and slightly over did it (now my back aches like hell!) Loved this, with thanks and appreciation. Cathi
