    Face it generals are more politician than soldier. They shine seats with their rear end, uniforms are custom made, spend more time in a office than they do in the field and thats not just generals. If you take a look at many awards they get they are given at the end of a command and pretty much a token. With 12 years in and counting I can tell you I have seen 19 year old grunts who cant do 20 pushups and career men with their belly hanging over their belt. Physical fitness needs a major overhaul in the military… all branches… active, reserve and guard.

    I do believe that when you are in the service, no matter what rank you hold, you are still United States property. Also there are certain criterias you are held to and not to mention you should be setting a good example for others, you lead by example…With that being said of all people to have to “weigh in” on this and tell someone else they need to slim down is Christie? Christie is no poster boy for fitness and appears to be a walking heart attack waiting to happen. If he told me I had to trim down, I would say you first!

    I was a member of the New Jersey Army National Guard for several years and the New Jersey National Guard Army and Air Guard allowed FAT Over weight Guardsman to be in the National Guard. The Governor is 100% correct, overweight National Guardsman tell the tax payers that the Guardsman are not ready if called up. The Overweight Guardsman are being covered by their Company Commanders. The Overweight National Guardsman is a liability to the Tax Payers, the chances of having a stroke, hart attack, and their inability to function as a military person. A GREAT NUMBER OF Fulltime National Guard members MALE AND FEMALE are given a free pass. We want the Governor to loose weight in order to take better care of his health, less not for get the Governor is the General Boss.

    wow despite lap band surgery Christie does not seem to have slimmed down a whole bunch. For obese guys that are not active, need both diet and exercise to slim down. For most active guys (4-5 miles walk per day), diet should get you to a reasonable size following which both diet and exercise is needed to maintain it.
