On the day that Airman Apprentice Antonio D. Miller ditched his Navy unit and deserted from the Navy, “Night Fever” by the Bee Gees was the number one song in America, Jimmy Carter was president and junior enlisted sailors couldn’t even begin to explain the meaning of #FYP.
But desert Miller did, on April 14, 1978, giving the slip to his Naval Station Norfolk, Virginia, command and remaining on the lam until May of last year, when the long arm of Navy law finally caught up with him, more than 44 years later.

UPDATED PHYSICAL READINESS PROGRAM GUIDES FOR 2023
With the release of OPNAVINST 6110.1K (22 April 2022) and the incorporation of previously released Physical Readiness Program (PRP) NAVADMINS, along with feedback from the Fleet, we have condensed the PRP Guides from 15 to 11.
CFL/ACFLs are highly encouraged to thoroughly review each PRP Guide in its entirety, as several guides have been updated to provide clarity to the Fleet. Although the guides are written primarily for CFL/ACFLs, all personnel may review the new PRP Guides to fully understand the policies of the Navy Physical Readiness Program. The new 11 guides are listed below and can be found under the Guides tab to the left:
Guide 1: PRP Policies
Guide 2: Command PRP Checklists
Guide 3: CFL/ACFL and Member’s Responsibilities
Guide 4: Body Composition Assessment (BCA)
Guide 5: Physical Readiness Test (PRT)
Guide 6: PFA Medical Readiness
Guide 7: PRIMS-2
Guide 8: Managing PFA Records for Pregnant Sailors
Guide 9: Command PT and FEP
Guide 10: Nutrition Resources
Guide 11: Conduct of the PFA in COVID-19 Conditions
With the 2023 PFA cycle approaching, commands are encouraged to include PRP Policy training topics (Medical Waivers, BCA Measurements, mock/official PRT, etc.) within their training schedules and prior to conducting their Official Command PFA Cycle, as prescribed in their 10-week notice.
