Another sign of the "Age of the Wimp."

Among a slew of basic training changes, the army is nixing the grenade throwing requirement.

>>>>"We are finding that there are a large number of trainees that come in that quite frankly just physically don't have the capacity to throw a hand grenade 20 to 25 to 30 meters. In 10 weeks, we are on a 48-hour period; you are just not going to be able to teach someone how to throw if they haven't thrown growing up."<<<<

That's one of the best times in Basic. That and firing the LAW, which I missed because my mom decided to send me cupcakes for my 18th birthday, so I got pulled out of training because the package required a signature.
