The Army requires the initiation of separation proceedings against any Soldier  who has failed two consecutive record APFTs.  Similarly, there are strict requirements for height and weight standards, which may be enforced if a Soldier fails to progress after being flagged for obesity.  However, this does not mean that the Soldier will, in fact, be separated. Similarly, there are a host of programs available to Soldiers battling issues with physical  readiness.  You should talk to your assigned TDS attorney in evaluating the options available to you.
