Is lack of fitness putting our national security at risk?

Our partners at PHIT America.org have issued a message that underscores their mission of improving the fitness of adults and, especially, children in the United States.  Due to a lack of physical education programs in American schools, more and more children are lacking the physical abilities required to serve in the military. “One in three children are overweight and obese and about 71% of our children cannot serve in the United States military because they are overweight or obese,” said retired Rear Admiral James Rodman. Helping pass PHIT America’s PHIT Act would be a great start toward reversing this trend.
