Changes for Navy recruits

Changes for Navy recruits


Some new changes are in effect when it comes to U.S. Navy recruits. They will need some speed in order to get to boot camp.

The Navy says it will soon require recruits to pass a 1.5-mile running test. Men will reportedly have to complete the run in a little more than sixteen minutes and women in just over eighteen minutes.

Navy officials say as many as 70% of recruits fail their first physical readiness test during the first week of boot camp. The new rules are aimed at keeping the focus on other critical learning during the eight-week training.
