Fort Knox about 1998 and our new company commander decided to schedule a health day. He got people to come in from the community and give us classes. These were not military people that showed up. All civilians.
A doctor and nurse talked about all kinds of interesting things, how to get vasectomies, how to get birth control pills, stop smoking don’t drink too much, etc..
A psychiatrist talked about the importance of mental health and how we should be nice to everyone.
A physical therapist came and talked about exercise.
The head nutritionist from the state of Kentucky came and talked about eating healthy. She got a bit flustered when the audience started grumbling, rolling eyes and several people walked out.
That’s when the Captain decided to come into the room and see what was going on and discovered that the head of nutrition for the state of Kentucky was a 5 foot tall woman who weighed about 300 pounds.
Captain thanked her for her time and said she could go. The Captain had the 1SG dismiss us for the rest of the day and we all went to Burger King.
