  1. They’re old and fat because the CAP doesn’t enforce the standards (or any standards for that matter). It’s that simple!

    • The bottom line is self control, personal responsibility. If the chow halls at Maxwell serves donuts so what, eat a plain salad and lead by example.

      There should be zero tolerance for obesity in the CAP. Any CAP person who is identified as being obese should have 12 months to get in shape and, if they don’t, should be forced out.

      We are Airmen…NOT Fatmen!

  2. Keep them fat and happy to keep them from being effective. That goes for all Americans. If we aren’t out there everyday, trying to conquer ourselves, challenging ourselves to up our game physically, we’re moving in the wrong direction. And the CAP is going to get affected by that. It’s important to have hunger in your life as a person, a desire to be better in every way, every single day. I think that is the problem, not the fat itself.

    It’s not like backwoods Alabama is going to produce a top-notch talent pool, either. CAP HQ would be better off located closer to a major metropolitan area.

  4. It is truly shameful that the public appearance of CAP is one that suggests a lifetime of poor decision making. The rampant obesity problem in CAP immediately undermines the CAP mission values and is counterproductive to the mentoring of cadets. This unhealthy appearance is the norm in the Rhode Island Wing.

  5. The Elderly & the Obese… the “spitting image” of the CAP today!

    Alabama is the 6th-most obese state in the nation, and nearly a third of its residents live with a significant amount of excess weight, according to the Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index published yesterday.

    In addition to suffering higher rates of physical illness, people who are obese are more likely to suffer financial hardships, difficulties in social relationships and a lack of a sense of purpose, according to the index.

    Since 2008, Alabama has ranked in the top ten for high rates of obesity in six out of eight years.
