Is it required to take an Army Physical Fitness test while deployed?

In most situations, the decision would be up to the chain of command to determine whether the Observation Post (OP) tempo allows the taking of a Physical Training (PT) test while deployed. Sometimes the PT test is based on mission timeline, other times they are exempt due to security issues.

What is the ARM’s regulations are there pertaining permissible prescription medications?

If someone has a prescription from their doctor, there is no problem taking medication that is legally subscribed. Keep a copy of the prescription so if there is a drug test and it comes back positive it can be proven why it is showing up in the body and via the drug test.

What are the army regulations that covers underage drinking?

Underage drinking is prosecuted under governing state laws. However, if a military person violates a state law, this individual can be prosecuted under Art 134, Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ). Many times the commanding officer will issue an order of violation that can be prosecuted under Article 92, UCMJ.

Will the Army recognize a person that is named as Executive of Estate if the two parties are not married?
