Earning the GAFPB: an Airman's evolution

U.S. Air Force Airman 1st Class Derek Siefert, 633rd Air Base Wing, Public Affairs photojournalist performs a flexed-arm hang during the German Armed Forces Badge for military Proficiency at Joint Base Langley-Eustis, Va., Nov. 1, 2016. The GAFPB flexed-arm hang is just one of three events that make up the basic fitness test; five second hold is the minimum requirement to pass. The other two events are: 11 by 10-meter sprint test finishing within 60 seconds and a 1,000 meter run finishing within six minutes and 30 seconds. (U.S. Air Force photo/Tech Sgt. Daylena S. Ricks)
