I failed second apft test. Im not looking to be chaptered out. I made strides to improve the area I failed.
I failed my run, which I have never done before.. because of Shin splits feeling like stress fractures. I informed 1SGT five days out I was concerned about my run and not the apft failure event, Push Ups. I was under impression after the test you can go to sick hall. So I tried to tough it out. I read the regulation. I get why I am being processed now.
Is this a defense to fight the chapter? During the ninety days I was given to prepare for a retest...I was never administered a Diagnostic every Thirty days. even after my appointment I imagine shin splits is a separation of its own Standing.

Based on what you have provided, nothing would give you a case to reverse the process. If you are serious and otherwise a good Soldier please with your command team and commit to eecelling in the future. You have to give them a reason to support. Thank you for your service.

Not sure how this will play out as far as an appeal goes. I would imagine they should look over your records and see a passing soldier who had a bad day.

However, there is most likely a great deal more involved, and I don’t think a potential outcome can be predicted for this as there is much more information that needs to be gathered.

I’m tagging a few people who may be able to help. I encourage those I tagged in this to communicate via messages.

This is your livelihood, after all, and with all the ones who are trying to leave, it is sad that would treat someone who wants to be a soldier like this.

Can anyone help SPC (Join to see) out?

This is hard to answer without full details and more information.
Do you still have shin splints? I made a workout for myself when I had them. I iced and rolled my shins all the time, while strengthening my calves as much as I could.
If or when you feel ready to pass (or even if you do not) maybe you could talk to your NCOs and try
to retake a PT test until you pass. It would show you cared and you willing to try. (I am not saying that you do not care and are not trying, just saying its a positive way to try to resolve this).
