officer are expected to be in better shape, they set an example for the enlisted soldiers, so therefore they must achieve 70% while the enlisted are only required to do 60%! get use to random things like that if you do join! i love the guard but sometimes it really confuses the hell out of me!!

i am not that familiar with the guard but regular army does not have separate standards for the pt test. you need 60% regardless. now i have been in a company where a company commander will require you to get a 70% or some other % and if you do not then you have to go to remedial pt but they can not flag you or bring any action against you because you still pass the pt test by the army standards. so as far as for regular army, you need to pass with 60% in each event.

I am currently in my last week of OBLC and have never heard of this 70% requirement. It has been the standard 60% for my class.
