Toughing it out

Tech. Sgt. Dan Houghton, 368th Recruiting Squadron pararescue liaison, conducts a Physical Ability and Stamina Test on Logan Schiermeyer at the Hill Air Force Base, Utah, fitness center Sept. 22. Schiermeyer is a member of the Delayed Entry Program for Master Sgt. Christopher Kisse, the recruiter in Roy, Utah. He enters active duty Oct. 14 and has been training for his new career in pararescue. As he was finishing his last few seconds of push-ups, Houghton threw his beret on the concrete and asked him, “How bad do you want it?” Even though Schiermeyer was near exhaustion, he was able to do 10 more push-ups. His overall PAST numbers were: 9:34 for the swim; 9:28 for the run; 20 pull-ups; 79 sit-ups; and 82 push-ups. (U.S. Air Force photo)
