Article on youth and military services...

Since most of this clan has done some sort of service or other, I thought you all might be interested in reading this. I'd been hearing about it and finally decided to find the article myself. As a recruiter myself right now, I see so much of this it concerns me as well. My station alone disqualifies about 85% of our applicants because they are overweight. Something else concerns me - I talk to adults that are running JrROTC programs and other youth programs around the area and what I hear amazes me - Mothers take their daughters to the ER after an ROTC instructor makes her run because her legs hurt and they don't know why, turns out her muscles were sore and she had never experienced it before. Another told me he had to call an ambulance because he made his class run and one female said she was having heart problems - paramedics informed her it was just beating fast from the exercise - what's insane is she didn't know why it was beating fast, and of course she was huge. What is going on in this country when people don't know why their heart is beating fast? Or what muscle soreness is?

It's not just video games, it's the shift in culture, where there are no winners or losers, and no competition. This is supposed to improve their self esteem??? "Cough", kids today can't handle disappointment, and if they don't learn to deal with it they do lose. Freaking socialists babble just turns them into under achievers with no moral compass or direction in life.
All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience to remain silent.

I don't know about calling it socialist babble, but I will say that it sucks that kids are pussies these days.

We have been talking a lot about this subject in Little league baseball this year. The kids are in just absolutely horrible shape. 11 and 12 yr old boys should be able to run and play all day. Nope. They are "just too tired". Parents get upset because our tradition is to run 1 lap in a win or 2 laps in a loss. 80 degrees out and I hear that i'm too hard on the kids on these hot days. I have 3 players that will consistently ask to be on the bench because they're tired. I love the gaming as much as anyone but get outside a little.

The real sad thing is I go to a track meet and see the....fat kids taking laps warming up for their race - unheard of in my day - if you weren't fast you didn't 'get the chance'. I had a kid come in the office the other day with an anchor tattooed between his eyebrows, and a scar with stitches tattooed on his cheek. A girl came in and had a felony charge for beating up her boyfriend and putting him in the hospital - might have made a good Marine actually, but 18 yrs old and female with a felony...wow. Things are really changing

I don't know what the tattoo'ed kid has to do with the fatasses, but my girlfriend threw the rabbit cage at me the other day.

We need to find a way to relate the importance of being fit to today's youth.
