With the way much of the Big Media reports long-known facts about the military, you'd think that some of them just discovered gold.
Of some 32 million Americans now in [17 to 24 age] group, the Army deems the vast majority too obese, too uneducated, too flawed in some way, according to its estimates for the current budget year.And has done so every year at least since I've been paying attention (the last twenty-five). The article lists several other factors, all of which have been disqualifiers for military service since the draft ended and the military started relying solely on volunteers over thirty years ago.
As I said before, the military doesn't want the crack/meth-baby offspring of my baby-boomer cohorts. Imagine that.
