SOLDIER PREP COURSE The Army announced plans last week to establish a pre-
basic training course at Fort Jackson, South Carolina, for helping prospective troops
who don’t meet aptitude test or body fat standards prepare for boot camp. The Future
Soldier Preparatory Course will have two tracks: an educational program for recruits
who need help improving their scores on the Armed Forces Qualification Test and a
fitness program. Attendees will train up to 90 days, with opportunities every three
weeks to ship to basic training upon meeting accession standards.
