Wii Fit and DDR might wind up in Naval boot camp

The theory is that games will be more approachable a concept and encourage recruits to keep moving.
My parents' generation thought that they could bring down the military-industrial complex with love. Turns out they might have had more success with Twinkies. God, I love this country.
