Women don’t have to do pullups to pass this year’s PFT, but some have already started training for the test.

When the changes take affect, female Marines will have to do three pullups to pass and eight to get a perfect score.

We want to hear from women who have tackled the pullups and won. If you went from zero to max, we want to hear from you.

Email OFFduty staff writer Jon R. Anderson at jona@militarytimes.com and you could be in an upcoming story.
