Abstract : This monograph examines the relationship between the United States Army's physical fitness program and the physical combat readiness of the combat arms soldier. Linking together physical fitness standards, physical training, and combat readiness is accomplished using entrance and retention standards, initial entry training (IET), and unit physical training and testing. The actual physical combat task performance depends on the quality of the soldier produced by the physical fitness program.
