We often talk here about fat useless soldiers who can't do PFTs because of their weight, and end up being downgraded and becoming a drain on the unit's resources. Is there not a place in the Armed Forces for one of these 'Fat Camps' that we keep seeing on TV? Send fat blimp soldiers to this place for a few weeks where there is nothing but PT, health living classes and the cookhouse only does healthy food. It can be run by PTIs who, rather than beast for the sake of beasting, can develop you from fat knacker to fit soldier, and then return him or her to their unit upgraded and ready to earn their wage. If they fail to pass their PFT at the end of Fat Camp they get binned, or if they let themselves go again then it can be 3 Month Warning Order and then binned. Given a chance to sort themselves out in a dedicated programme with no distractions, would fatties be happy to go, and would the Army benefit? This is a serious question, so let's keep the digs at certain Corps out of it shall we?
