Veterans Issue Marching Orders to Get Kids in Shape

(Undated) -- A group of retired military leaders says it's a matter of national security to improve children's health and their education. "Mission: Readiness" is a group of some 400 retired generals, admirals and senior military leaders, including retired Brigadier General Denny Schulstad. Schulstad says the growing number of young people who are overweight or obese is of great concern to the military because many potential recruits are not healthy enough to enlist.
