Even the military is ganging up on the lunch ladies. According to a USA Today article, a group of retired military leaders is blaming schools for unfit recruits.

They say about one-quarter of young adults age 17 to 24 are too heavy to serve. That’s 9 million people. And every year, the military discharges more than 1,200 first-term enlistees because of weight problems.
