One stone is 14lbs (Pounds). I joined aged 17. Eventually I was 5'7" and 142 lbs- fighting weight.
i.e. Ten stones 2 pounds. I was commissioned at 20 declining a para offer.
USMC height requirements 4' 10" to max of 6'8".
We were known as the lean, mean, green fighting machine. We ran and ran for miles!
You sounded quite the fearsome soldier, and a good one to be commissioned so young too. That's very rare from what I hear! It's not the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog!
My BMI is 20.3 I pass but barely. I'm rather young at the age of 20 years, and I have a high metabolism combined with the amounts of physical activity I do. I will not boast about my prowess but I take good care of my body.
My body has a light frame, and low body fat. I wish I could be like some others, and have a few extra kilos on me, but I suppose I will get heavier should I pass selection and have some time under my belt.
Exactly! Everyone else in the world typically says legal age is 16-18. Old enough to vote for politicians, buy tobacco, pay taxes, go to jail as an adult, and die for your country, but heaven forbid you drink a beer after a day's work oh no!!
Canada maybe, my flight has a layover there for awhile so I might have a beer or two there. As for Mexico, hell no! I'm a white gringo "cowboy". Anywhere outside of Cancun, Tijuana, or Mexico City is bad for business.
