Alex Colliver, front, pulls a 90-pound sled 50 meters that simulates the strength needed in pulling a battle buddy out of harm's way during a pilot for the Army Combat Readiness Test, a six-event assessment designed to reduce injuries and replace the current Army Physical Fitness Test. About 120 Soldiers based at Fort Lee, Va., had the opportunity to take the test Sept. 13-14, 2017. Developers plan to test at Fort Leonard Wood, Mo., next month. If approved, the new test could be implemented across the Army in fiscal year 2020. (Photo Credit: U.S. Army photo by Sean Kimmons)
