Will Fitness Lead to Promotion?

Chief Master Sergeant of the Air Force Gerald R. Murray led a panel of command chiefs at AFA’s Air & Space Conference in Washington, D.C. One topic raised was whether the Air Force planned to link documented physical fitness levels to performance reports and, ultimately, promotion. The answer from Murray: Nothing is final but the service has a number of proposals under review. He says that staying fit is “a readiness issue for us, and we’re not going to back away from that.”
