This is straight from page 25 of the DoD Instruction

"Alternate PAT events are permitted for current CPs and SGs, with long-term medical restrictions or disabilities, but can otherwise perform the essential functions of the job. Alternate PAT tests must have the same energy demands as the regular test, and be validated."

It should be fairly easy to structure alternate PATs for those with disabilities. If you can't do sittups, can you do leg lifts? If you can't do pushups can you do chin-ups? If you can't do a mile and one-half run in seventeen minutes, can you ride a bike for five miles in thirty minutes?

If you can't do anything, what crappy level of security are you providing?
