@Dawn gave the proper definition.
He was reassigned to another boot camp company, that was 2 weeks of training behind us. I’m not sure what boot is now but the 6th week of boot, was passing the physical testing requirements. So he could try to pass the physical requirements.
On a side note, when you have that happen, you usually get extra PT, called Mo Tours or Mini Mo Tours. Ostensibly, they were given out if you weren’t meeting training standards. But they were also used for those who needed more physical training.
Mo Tours =Motivational Tours of 3 hours of intense PT, supervised by Company Commanders
Mini Mo Tours =Same as above but only 1 hour of intense PT.
Due to physical requirements required to test into my rating, I did a Full Mo tour every night. As I felt I needed more upper body strength. I was literally on a 4000 calorie a day diet for 6 years and I had to sit in front of an enlisted person of higher rank to make sure I ate all of my meals (Per Doctors orders) as I did not have enough body fat. So I missed alot of the down time that helped to build unity, or that was the reason I was given by my CC.
The pet was my boot camp RCPO (Recruit Chief Petty Officer recruit in charge when CC were not), gave me alot of grief. Especially, after 4th week when we had to do a required stamina run. He actually fell out during the run and another recruit and I, literally, carried him through the rest of the run.
Sorry for confusion.
