A Guy Lost 160 Pounds So He Could Join the Army
33-year-old Kevin Ammerman of Indianapolis, Indiana wanted to join the Marines. But when he went to enlist, they turned him down, because he weighed 351 pounds. And that was actually an improvement. The weight listed on Kevin's driver's license is 375 pounds. The Marines said he wasn't fit to fight, and when Kevin tried to enlist in other branches of the military, they all told him the same thing.
So Kevin did something about it. He cut out fast food and began training. He doesn't say how long it took him, but Kevin managed to lose 160 pounds. He enlisted in the Army and they accepted him, right before he turned 34, which is the Army's enlistment age cutoff. He begins his deployment on October 30th.
