Jeff Hays Films Today ~> Lt. Generals National Security warning: Obesity

Juloy 12, 2022

Lt. Gen Hertling is a 3 star general in the US Army. He shared a sobering insider perspective that left me feeling uneasy.

LTG Hertling has been in the military for 38 years. He’s analyzed countless security threats, trained countless soldiers and personally fought in several wars

During his time in the military, LTG Hertling saw some things that he determined to be one of our gravest security threats.

No, it’s not nuclear warheads, it’s not Russia or China, or even terrorism.

Any guesses?

I doubt you would have guessed, OBESITY.

Here’s one key fact he shared to put it into perspective…

Of the 17-24 year old men who wanted to join the US Army, 75% were disqualified due to underlying health issues, the number one reason being… they were obese.

Of the remaining 25% that did qualify… 60% could not pass the Physical Training test applied to all candidates on day 1 of basic training.

I know, you’re probably not expected to be able to pass a PT test for military basic training, but it’s a humbling sign that Americans are too fat, and are only getting fatter.

A child of the peace and antiWar movements, a Truther with self-diagnosed Opposition Defiance Disorder, formerly politically liberal tho now politically marooned, and Post-Doomer, on any issue, I trend to the conspiracy side, sort through the absurd, fantastical and insane, until I find firm ground usually located just the other side of the censorship firewall of propaganda and orthodoxy, dogma, and other either / or thinking.
