71% of Americans between ages 17-24 would be rejected for military service. Most common reasons are being too fat, not graduating high school, being on ADHD medication, or having gauge piercings or tattoos.


"The quality of people willing to serve has been declining rapidly," the U.S. Army Recruiting Command's commanding general says 

Approximately 71% of the 34 million 17-to-24-year-olds in the U.S. would not qualify for military service because of reasons related to health, physical appearance and educational background, according to the Pentagon.

The ineligible typically includes those who are obese, those who lack a high school diploma or a GED, convicted felons, those taking prescription drugs for ADHD and those with certain tattoos and ear gauges, the Wall Street Journal reports, though some requirements can be waived.
Only 1% of young people are both “eligible and inclined to have conversation with” the military about possible service, according to the Defense Department.
“The quality of people willing to serve has been declining rapidly,” Major General Allen Batschelet, the U.S. Army Recruiting Command’s commanding general, told the WSJ.

    yeah that's why they just invited all the illegals to serve and gain citizenship. because they are so smart and healthy right?
    truth is 71% of Americans don't want to serve dark occultists in their illegal dope wars. who wants to maimed for life serving some pencil neck worm who got his job on his knees at bohemiam grove.

    Let me guess, the solution is autonomous air drones, and combat robots.
