Army revamps basic training PT

FORT JACKSON, S.C. (AP) - New soldiers are grunting through the kind of stretches and twists found in "ab blaster" classes at suburban gyms as the Army revamps its basic training regimen for the first time in three decades.

Heeding the advice of Iraq and Afghanistan combat veterans, commanders are dropping five-mile runs and bayonet drills in favor of zigzag sprints and exercises that hone core muscles. Battlefield sergeants say that's the kind of fitness needed to dodge across alleys, walk patrol with heavy packs and body armor or haul a buddy out of a burning vehicle.

Recycling makes a difference

Do you ever wonder if the things you do have any impact on the world? I guess most of us wonder whether our lives and actions make a difference at all. I personally believe we are all here for a purpose, and I think our daily choices impact those around us and our world. While I can't really delve into the deeper meaning of life and our existence on Earth (because that is really not what this column is all about), I can tell you that if you choose to recycle, you make a difference.
