I Don't Believe the Army Recruits
From a Politico piece on changes in basic training:
" Of those who are recruited, 54 percent of males and 43 percent of females are overweight."
Of course, most of my basic training unit were draftees, but I doubt there were more than 3 or 4 who were overweight. The whole story is interesting.
