We shouldn't be punishing overweight but effective troops
from The Washington Post
The Feb. 1 Health and Science article "Battle of the bulge" suggested that the military needs to change the way it treats those who are overweight. The article featured troops with years of valuable training and experience who passed the athletic measures of their service's fitness standards. These troops are not so fat that they can't do their jobs. But they face discharge because of a bigger waistline than a thinner person with a similar passing grade.
