Retired Military Concerned Over Childhood Obesity

A group of retired military officers are calling school lunches a national security threat.

They're saying the lunches schools serve are helping make the country's youth so fat they can't meet the military's physical fitness standards.

A new report claims more than nine million young adults ages17 to 24 are too overweight to join the military. That's over a quarter of the population.

The officers want a wide-ranging nutrition bill aimed at making school lunches healthier.
