Eat up, get chubby. Seriously. Add something like 50lbs over what your ideal would be. Probably not the best for your own health though, but if they
figure you won't be passing any PT for a while they'll probably leave you alone and not bother you again.
At least in my experience that worked in conjunction with politely telling the Navy no thanks. Maybe it'll work for the Army?
The hard part of that strategy is getting the weight back down. Still got 25lbs to go.
Of course some people would wonder "You're in the Navy in a ship, why would you want out of that?" True, 600 miles out of the line of fire on average
and being a moving target at that. Nobody was shooting at me personally... But so many possible deathtraps can be made by the mistakes of shipmates or
yardies during certain maintenance activities, it's not funny. It's one hell of an industrial environment. (And just the aircraft themselves during
flight ops presented more looming danger than any adversary imo. The fact there are few accidents says just how amazing the pilots and airwing company
are, even if a bit too full of themselves at times.) That and stress in general from a disorganized command and living in cramped quarters... Six
years is enough of that.
