Hi. I don't post too often, but I heard from my daughter that some cadets she knew from last year are no longer in ROTC this year. They couldn't pass the weight/tape test and are out. So I googled about that to see how big of a problem it is. I usually see posts here about cadets getting disenrolled because of failure to pass the PT test, or grades, or getting arrested, etc. but it looks like weight might be the biggest problem of all. "Soldiers use extreme methods to meet regs: Diet pills, laxatives, liposuction: Everyone is trying to meet the Army’s weight, tape standards"http://www.armytimes.com/news/2010/12/army-extreme-weight-loss-120510w/ Here is the Regulation I found: http://armypubs.army.mil/epubs/pdf/r600_9.pdf What do you all think about the Army Times article (especially what soldiers (including higher officers) or cadets do to try to meet the wieght standard?
