Get Fit or Get Dead

The Armed Forces are beginning to feel the effects of American obesity and lack of exercise.

Despite the military’s stress on physical fitness, many senior officers and noncommissioned officers I have spoken to are adamant in their beliefs that today’s soldiers are physically softer than the soldiers of yesteryear.

One recent study substantiates this notion, as a Pentagon estimate stated that close to one-third of youths in America are physically unfit to serve.

Lets hope we aren't attacked by a more physically fit nation.
