    Well, dropping that guy on an unsuspecting terrorist will certainly have a "heavy" impact.

    It is sad that the army has become so desperate for personnel that they won't chapter people who refuse to meet the minimum standards.

    I mean, how many seats does that guy take up in an APC?
    I weigh much less in full combat gear than that guy would weigh naked....
    I also wonder what his "combat gear" would look like. I have never seen protective equipment that would fit on that guy.
    What I dont get is why they dont refuse them. In any combat situation, he will be much more of a hindrance than as asset.

    I have to ask, do any of you really believe that he is anymore than a Vet?

    The picture is a good one to have a lot of fun with, but, you seriously don't believe it, do you?

    I didn't mean the post to be a swipe at our servicemen, God bless them all! I merely thought it was funny and wanted to show my admiration to all the Marines who served and or served. I'm just stirring the shit a little on the interservice rivalry. I'm an Air Force (Chair Force) vet myself.

    If you can disprove authenticity of the pic, please do so!

    The Army probably did take him , looks like he is probably in some special training unit. That is what happens to overweight recruits in the Marine Corps. Of course in the Corps you can not be more than a couple pounds over max to even get in and then with a waiver and an understanding if you do not lose the weight you get discharged with no benefits.

    I haven't been out of the army all that long and I can tell you that the army is taking nearly anyone willing to sign up and that once they make it past AIT they pretty much have to committ a felony before you can get rid of them.

    I understand the pic was shared to have fun with and I understand it 'might' be a valid pic, but, I still think it is a Vet. Funny nevertheless.

    In the past 18 months I have spent time on 4 different posts and he is the worse case I have seen, with that nice roll over the belt growth. lol
