Army Pt types personalities

Last edited Mon Sep 11, 2017, 06:29 AM - Edit history (1)

Joking last night with a friend who is retired army we were joking about PT. What brought this up was my two guys had to mention on our version of circuit PT at gym reason last visit to pull up bar I gave only two. I know never to expect sympathy or compassion in ceartin areas from them.

So playing poker 7 card with sgt major and the boys the conversation evolved into sarcasm it usually does. So these are the types I remember from PT

1. The profile type who is always riding some sort of medical condition. I noticed chronic profiles usually are required to attend PT by the company first sgt and give their best on thumb extensions.

2. The people who show up early and their wide awake and greet everyone morning morning sgt morning LT.

3. The human border collies who even before PT these people can not just stand still. Example they are knocking out jumping jacks push ups even before you catch your first extend to the left. I have quite amount of personal experience with these types I had two of em in my squad in 82nd. And I knew the one personally because he was in 325th like a whole year before me we grew up together in republic of Appalachia. We were year apart in high school I had crush on his sister.

4. Show up just in time types or they sneak in after observing waiting for the company to be in front leaning rest position. And then they try and sneak in and hey it's all cool been here whole time.

5. The hungover types thinking dammit I should have went to bed at 0300 instead of 0330 and stopped drinking. these types are the troopers that usually go to bed with pt gear on , so they can get the max out of the 90 minutes of good rest before first call.

6. The gossip types before pt fill you in on company gossip especially after a weekend off. Hey did you hear so in so caught his wife in compromising positions with dudes from arty. Or fills you in on latest shit House rumors no guys I heard this from so and so. So it has to be true no shit the first sgt parents are really Sasquatches he said he saw them at px Saturday. Wow if that is true then that explain a lot about TOP.

Just a few I came up with from memories. If you want or care to love to hear if I missed any types.
