New Army rules cut loopholes for body fat

Army Times’ staff writer Lance Bacon reports this week on new rules regarding soldier and body fat levels.

Lance writes:

A major revision of Army Regulation 600-9 imposes strict rules for dealing with overweight soldiers.

Don’t worry — the height/weight scale hasn’t changed, though leadership now requires all scales used for weight measurement to be calibrated annually for accuracy.

The change: No loopholes anymore. Policies and All Army Activities are brought under one umbrella with specific requirements on soldiers and commands.

Read the rest of Lance’s story over on Army Times.
