America's Armed Forces: Time for a Checkup

Episode Description
Tuesday, Sep 18, 2012 - 7:00 PM    At a time when laser-guided missiles, stealth technology and drone aircraft are game-changers on battlefields around the world, we sometimes overlook our nation's ultimate weapons system: the more than one million men and women who put their lives on the line every day in America's armed forces. In America's Armed Forces: Time for a Checkup, moderator John King of CNN and expert panelists examine the wide-ranging impacts health-related issues exact on our nation's military preparedness, national security, healthcare policy and economic stability. Topics include how everyday health issues, such as obesity and substance abuse, affect prospective recruits' eligibility to serve; how we assure that our service men and women are fit for the many difficult challenges they face in the post-9/11 world; and how we take care of our nation's wounded warriors.
