Bragg soldier with kidney disease reaches max scores on new Army Combat Fitness Test
By: Rachael Riley, The Fayetteville Observer via the AP   20 hours ago


FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. — When Maj. Carpaccio “Pace” Owens was into about the seventh year of his Army career, he was diagnosed with chronic kidney disease.

His personal, civilian insurance company has denied him term life insurance based on the preexisting condition.

At 43, Owens is in “stage three” of the disease, meaning his kidneys function at about 50 percent.

Now 19 years into his Army career, Owens, 43, is one of the first soldiers within the 82nd Airborne Division known to reach an unofficial maximum score on the new Army Combat Fitness Test that goes into effect by October 2020.

Your life is up to you.  Spirit provides the canvas, you do the painting.  There are three kinds of people: Those who make things happen; those who watch what happens;, and, those who wonder what happened.  Take charge of your life--or someone else will.
