Our generals, from the picture above are not inspiring. None of them are fit. When you see US Army generals, you will never see any of them with potbellies. Generals have to be exemplary to their men and subordinates and these guys are definitely not. Are you telling me that you need money for exercises that will make the army fit as well?
