Every year candidates arrive expecting to be enrolled and trained as Infantry soldiers, but have done little preparation of their own ... especially in respect to their personal fitness. As a result they cannot keep up with the rigours of daily physical training and field exercises. They fall back, they develop stress injuries, some quit. some are sent home for medical reasons due to their injuries. Others are given falling grades because they lack the necessary stamina to succeed in the infantry. This is particularly regrettable when they demonstrate the potential to be successful otherwise. In many cases, prior knowledge of the training with an emphasis on individual physical preparation can prevent the loss of a potential soldier.
