If a gym is not required, only somewhere to run and do press ups and sit ups, perhaps we can get rid of all the gyms on Army bases and do away with the PTI's.
The reply to that letter in Soldier magazine showed somebody who needed a dose of reality kicking back into them.
If personell want to maintain or improve their fitness they should have the facilities to achieve it.
I wonder why people are leaving the Army when you have this attitude from those who should know better.
Is anyone really surprised at this move? All our benefits are being eroded slowly. I would have thought that, given the nature of the job, access to a gym is a requirement, however, it it quite obvious that the accountants don't. It's all on the slide. The only question I have now is whether to jump ship now or wait to see what will happen later. I often feel that it just cannot get any worse!
