  • Overweight! I need help! ROTC

    I just recently graduated High School and I will be leaving for college in about two months. I played football in High School and I am a big kid, but I do not currently meet the requirements for joining the guard. My problem is this, I am 6'5" and I weigh approx. 268 pounds. My two miles time is not very good, nor are my push-ups, my sit-ups are decent. This is my dream, I want to do this, but I am afraid that I will not be able to join ROTC. What do you think? I am not a soft kid and I will work my behind off to get in shape, but I am afraid of slowing everyone down and/or being a hassle. If you have any advice please send it my way.

    P.S. I have started to run everyday and I am doing my best to eat right.

    Your ROTC cadre will help you lose weight. You won't be required to pass the APFT or meet ht/wt stasndards until you are read to contract, so you have some time. In the meantime continue working.
