Becoming a Guardian: commander’s PT program instills discipline

U.S. Air Force Staff Sgt. Garrett Allen, 608th Air Operations Center strategy division planner, shakes hands with Col. Glen Shilland, 608th AOC commander, after completing a 6.08-mile ruck march as part of a PT program capstone event at Barksdale Air Force Base, La., Dec. 12, 2016. The 608th AOC Commander’s Advanced PT requires participants to complete 3,000 push-ups, 3,000 sit-ups, run 120 miles and complete a 6.08 mile ruck march within a 90-day period to earn their name on an ingot attached to the fitness plaque. The program is intended to encourage habitual fitness, boost morale and serve as an initiative to seeking out new fitness regimes. (U.S. Air Force photo by Senior Airman Luke Hill)
