Obesity Now Greater Threat To Military Then Homosexuality

Obesity now a greater threat to US Troops then homosexuality!

We all thought ‘Don’t ask, Don’t’ tell would protect us from getting infected with a dose of humanity by prohibiting gays in the military. How stupid and ignorant that was. Though watch out, there is now an even bigger threat and it is called obesity.
In 2008 the military wrongly discharged 634 individuals under the ‘Don’t ask, Don’t tell’ rule.
Recently though, over 5,000 military personal were discharged for failing to meet military weight standards.
It looks like they got it wrong all this time. It wasn’t the gays that were the perceived threat to the military’s morale and readiness. Rather the fact that some soldiers might have been spending to much time in the Mess Hall.
Perhaps now we can take the time to not only teach acceptance of others but also learn how to cook and eat healthy.
Just think, a new venue for Weight Watchers to hold meetings at.
