Medical Personel in all Military Recruiting Centers sign now



18 YEARS OF AGE OR ABOVE ONLY

My son, Glenn Wilsey, decided to join the military in December 2010. His outstanding test scores allowed him to join whatever branch of the military he desired. He chose the Army. During the recruiting process, he was told he didn't meet the Armys weight standards for his height. A high school football player, he was six foot tall and weighed 270 lbs. He was advised by nonmedical personnel about unsafe methods of losing a great deal of weight quickly. This was not healthy advice from MEDICAL PERSONNEL. His recruiters failed to see the problems this advice was creating to his medical condition.
On March 3, 2011 he DIED from ACUTE CARDIAC DYSRYTHMIA, due to ELECTOLYTE IMBALANCE, with a contributing factor being dieting! I believe his death is the result of the information he was given. How many more have been mistreated in this manner? How many more have to die through neglect before PROPER MEDICAL OFFICIALS are put in place? Why is there no PROPER MEDICAL SUPERVISION of our recruits? How is this acceptable?!!!
Please sign this petition if you agree with protecting the MEDICAL RIGHTS of our future recruits!!! It will be sent to government officials, including the ones below. Your help is greatly appreciated!!
Thank You,
Lora Bailey

We, the undersigned, ask the government of the United States of America to put medical personnel in place at all military recruiting centers in this country. These people could keep tabs on recruits weight issues, nutrition, psychological problems, and/or stress injuries from excessive workouts. If in-house personnel see warning signs, they could request medical intervention to prevent further injury or deaths.

    These men and women put themselves on the line for this Country! If this Country recruits them and in a sense adopts them to be a soldier then you should be responsible for them mentally and physically while in your care.
