I took the West Point PT Entrance Test out of high school in 1970. I failed to do the requisite number of pullups. No one changed the test for me... I simply failed. So I Enlisted and spent a year at USMAPS (West Point Prep School) then at Fort Belvoir. After a year I retook the test and passed. I entered West point and graduated in 1975. As a young Lieutenant I found myself tasked to head up the West Point PT Test for local high school students which, by then, included women. The PT remained the same for men but women standards were lowered, including no requirement for pullups, just a standard for hanging by the arms for a designated period of time. I spent a year of my life striving to meet the standard. Women got a pass. Here we go again.
Will someone tell the Chinese, Russians, Al Queda, ISIS, etc to lower their combat victory requirements? I think not.
