PROFILES

I'm on permanent profile. What are the alternate events for the AFCT?

Right now, there are none.You'll be expected to perform all events as established until further guidance is published.

The Army is working on some alternate cardio events, such as a rowing, stationary bicycling, and swims.Here’s the official Army press release about the alternate events. It says

"The events selected for further testing include a5,000 meter row, a 15,000 meter stationary bike and a 1,200 meter swim. Each event will be completed in a set time, targeted at 25 minutes or less. If approved, Soldiers with a permanent profile will be required to successfully complete at a minimum the 3-Repetition Maximum Deadlift, the Sprint-Drag-Carry and one of the aerobic events. The alternate events measure minimum attributes Soldiers need to fight, render aid to others and decrease risk to themselves in a combat environment."

Can my commander send me to the field on a no-field-duty profile?

Bottom line, no. Commanders may not override duty instructions and limitations on DA3349. However, a commander can request that your treating provider clarify the language of the profile to articulate what tasks can be performed and what tasks should be avoided. We want to avoid broad, vague, and overly restrictive language in our profile writing.

I am not on a profile, but when I went through SRP, I was told that I was non-deployable to CENTCOM?

There are several conditions and medications that do not require a profile but will require a waiver in order to deploy.

I am currently on profile and unable to perform my military occupation. Can I be assigned to the Warrior Transition Battalion?

There’s two answers here….one for Active Soldiers, and another for Reserves.

For Active Component and Active Guard Reserve:

WTB is for Soldiers that are on a profile, or about to receive a profile, that will last for more than 6 months and limit their duties from “training or contributing to unit mission accomplishment”.

WTB is also for Soldiers that have a psychological condition that their provider believes poses a “substantial danger to self or others if the Soldier remains in the unit.”

For Reservists (not on AGR status):

WTB is for Soldiers who have incurred or aggravated a medical condition in the line of duty during duty “active duty status(contingency or non-contingency) or inactive duty status (inactive duty training, funeral honors duty)…”.

WTB is for Reservists that require definitive care.

 

BEHAVIORAL HEALTH

Where do I go if the behavioral health clinic is closed and I am having an emergency?

Winn Army Community Hospital Emergency Department after business hours, weekends and on holidays. A behavioral health provider is on call during these periods. Behavioral health clinics are open from0730-1630.

Can I receive my behavioral health records?

Yes,requests must be made in writing through the Patient Administrative Department at Winn Army Community Hospital. Records requests require a release of information (ROI) form to be completed that specifies what records are needed and over what period of time.

Does my family member need a referral to receive behavioral health services?

No. They can self-refer for off post services.

 

ACCESS TO CARE

My PCM referred me to a specialty provider. What is the next step of the process?

If your specialty appointment can be booked on-post, you can expect a call from the specialty clinic at Winn ACH.

If your specialty appointment must be referred off-post, you should expect a phone call or letter from Tricare within 7 business days notifying you of the clinic and location of
your specialty care appointment.

Ensure your mailing address and phone number are up to date in DEERS.

 

NEW ARMY COMBAT FITNESS TEST

What events are in the new PT test?

Here’s a link to everything you need to know about the test: https://www.army.mil/acft/

How can I get myself and my Soldiers ready for the new AFCT?

Here’s a full training guide for the new AFCT! https://www.army.mil/e2/downloads/rv7/acft/acft_tr...

I don’t have weights or a pull up bar at home. What should I do?

First, check the training guide! https://www.army.mil/e2/downloads/rv7/acft/acft_tr...

It shows strength-building exercises for each event. For example, page 2 – To get ready for the Deadlift,do sumo squats, staggered squat jumps, forward lunges, power jumps, and more.

For the leg tuck event, do the leg tuck-and-twist and V-up exercises. These will prepare you for the new Leg Tuck event.

Those too easy? Hold something above your head like a suitcase! Okay, it’s not the best idea, but it’s something.
