Our Fighters Are Fat

From Tom Ricks  The Best Defense:
At present, 62 percent of active duty military members over the age of 20 have a body mass index that falls into either the overweight or obese category.
 My title is, I hope, unfair.  I'd assume the 62 percent REMF's or FOBBITS, part of the "tail" supporting the fighters, and we have a bigger tail than ever.

And Gov. Romney wants to spend more money on the military? If he wins, I hope a good bit of it is with Weight Watchers.

(Have I ever mentioned that my worst prejudice, the one I have least under control, is probably weightism?)
