Weighing Down Our Military
Sean Brown Jr,
The information that is of question is what the actual legislation entails and what improvements do they want to see made. The only thing that the article states is. " We urge the full Senate to pass the Improve Child Nutrition Integrity and Access Act. We also urge the House of Representatives to support a similar compromise upholding the science-based nutrition standards as it considers its own bill on child nutrition". (Cornum, Shane) It goes into no detail about what specifics they want changed or what the existing legislation already has. The best place to find this information is on congresses website about bills that are in discussion.
All in all, I do agree that the conclusion made by the authors is valid, "Six weeks of basic training cannot undo a lifetime of bad habits for young men and women who want to serve our nation right now". (Cornum, Shane). By creating a healthier youth the hope is that in the future they will grow up to be healthy individuals that can be qualified to serve in the armed forces.
