Update, 16 October 2020

1. SUPPLEMENTAL GUIDANCE #1 FOR THE USE OF THE ARMY COMBAT FITNESS TEST (ACFT) DURING INITIAL MILITARY TRAINING (IMT) AND COMMISSIONING, 14 OCT 20. Memo from the ASA (M&RA): Per AD 2020-06, the ACFT is the Army’s physical fitness test of record as of 1 October 2020. Furthermore, the Directive prohibits the Army from taking any administrative actions against a Soldier, including adverse administrative actions such as separation and denial of appointment/commissioning, for failing the ACFT. This prohibition is effective until further guidance is published by this office. HODA staff principals and Army commands will continue to assess Soldier performance and ACFT results to inform the Assistant Secretary of the Army (Manpower and Reserve Affairs)’s (ASA (M&RA)) guidance. See the memo for guidance. https://www.milsuite.mil/book/docs/DOC-884989

2. FIGHT COUNTERPRODUCTIVE THINKING BY USING REAL-TIME RESILIENCE. From the Army Resilience Directorate: On a daily basis we have several important performances–morning PT, delivering a brief, putting together a PPT deck for a presentation, helping kids with homework, etc. However, a lot of the time we have counterproductive thoughts that take our attention off our task at hand and ultimately hinder us from performing to the best of our ability. Real-Time Resilience is a skill that utilizes evidence, optimism, & putting things in perspective to fight counterproductive thoughts in the moment and take us to a place of self-confidence. https://www.milsuite.mil/book/docs/DOC-884001
