American Kids, Too Weak for War, Cost Taxpayers $1.7 Billion A Year

Some bracing facts for Monday: Only one-third of America’s youth meet the minimum qualifications to even join the military and once the recruits are enlisted, another one-third of them wash out before they complete their term of enlistment.

That’s just in terms of physical fitness, psychological stability, and mental aptitude. That means that every year, the military has to enlist 248,000 recruits to produce 169,000 successful airmen, soldiers, sailors, and marines.
