Military applicants don’t meet standards

(CNN)- Getting into the military isn't as easy as it used to be.

According to the Pentagon — a majority of applicants are turned away for not meeting the desired standards.

Those
who want to wear the uniform need to be at least a high school
graduate, and have a clean record……free of drugs and criminal
actions.

Officials say medical problems and obesity also prevent some applicants from getting approved.

Uncle Sam can afford to be a little choosy when it comes to the picking people.

That's because the military says there are now roughly two applicants for each opening.
