            Based on the stories I've read..........AZNG may not be as bad NJNG, but it might be a close second. The AZNG was getting raked over the coals a month ago after the local paper broke news about a slew of scandals going all the way to the top.

                I suspect many soldiers have been getting by for years while being overweight during the "anybody and everybody" recruitment phase. And now that the military has to downsize, they are no longer safe. Regs are being followed. Paperwork is actually being done.

                  Touche. My company has led the state in terms of packets to the point where JAG has put a hold on us.

                    Well I am willing to bet for every soldier that is going to be discharged there are probably 10 civilians who would want his job.
