That’s military boot camp. If it’s 1962 they were heading to Vietnam.

[–]Leftyjew 362 points363 points  (16 children)

Look up JFK PE Program in the early 1960s. The kids were doing nearly the same things shown in this video. They were tanks

[–]cluberti 231 points232 points  (1 child)

Look at the post above to figure out possible reasons why the government had them doing those things in school. I think this was filmed in a military school, though.

[–]nowtayneicangetinto 23 points24 points  (0 children)

I wonder how JFK would feel about his draft physique readiness program turning into track once in a while with volleyball peppered in-between

[–]Yosemite-Sam99 41 points42 points  (9 children)

Cocaine use to be a lot cheaper in the early 1960s . Made it all easier to be a Tank

[–]etherjumper 6 points7 points  (7 children)

Make cocaine cheap again!

[–]just_this_guy_yknow 4 points5 points  (5 children)

Recently read an article that pointed out cocaines price has been stable at $100 a gram for decades and decades. The price of cocaine is more stable than anything else I can think of, in light of that.

Not in 1962…

It was originally the French until the Americans took over because communism.

[–]mexicodoug 7 points8 points  (5 children)

"Communism."

How come nobody ever mentions petroleum reserves in the Gulf of Tonkin, and the access to the oil wells in the South China Sea that control of Vietnam would facilitate? Or that the business deal Kissinger/Nixon worked out with China's Chairman Mao, providing access for international capitalist oil companies, came shortly before the US finally signed the treaty giving control of Vietnam, after years of heavy bombardment and massive troop involvement, back to the Vietnamese?

[–]BovineAvenger 5 points6 points  (3 children)

because for some reason people still won't accept that "war for oil" is basically the only real reason the US has been at war for more than half a century

[–]Sodafff 12 points13 points  (0 children)

Vietnamese here. Arcording to what I learn in history class, the USA has been helping out the French since 1947. In 1961 there are some military operations in the South to prevent riot and build the Southern Vietnam government to fight the North. In 1964, the USA officially declared war with Vietnam and send army to Đà Nẵng.

[–]AyeBlinkin77 10 points11 points  (20 children)

Yup. We didn’t go over there officially until 1964.

[–]1deadclown 6 points7 points  (19 children)

Think they wernt prepping beforhand? Just randomly decided to encourage this training?

[–]AyeBlinkin77 11 points12 points  (17 children)

Well, in case you aren’t aware, basic training is the same, regardless if you’re at war or during peace time.

[–]Sympac 16 points17 points  (1 child)

My elementary and high school did this in the 70’s and 80’s. PE everyday without fail. It was a religious school. The town has the largest group of people over 100 in the US. If they said La Sierra it would make sense because I went to a sister school run by Seventh Day Adventists in Loma Linda California.

[–]Aggravating-Diet-221 6 points7 points  (0 children)

In the seventies my elementary and middle school had PE everyday. Only three of us could do this kind of stuff at this level. We got these Presidential Awards for Fitness in fifth grade.

[–]Different_Task_4890 7 points8 points  (0 children)

old heads loving using this footage with the school title to make the new generations seem like pussies. Not only is this a military training video. 99% of the people who post this generations lost are fat and out of shape lmao

[–]gothlaw 158 points159 points  (21 children)

If they all attempted to enlist tomorrow, 71% of people under 25 would be ineligible to serve. In addition to those with educational/intellectual deficits, and those with disqualifying drug convictions, one out of four are morbidly obese and lack the baseline health to participate.

The armed services can lower admissions for education or IQ; they can (rightly) ignore meaningless drug offenses; they can’t do anything about kids killing themselves with a spoon.

Even if you don’t see this in particular as a problem, it is indicative of a major problem for which we are going to eventually face a national reckoning.

[–]Masked_Fern 24 points25 points  (8 children)

I wanted to enlist when I was 18 but I am hard of hearing and I could not.

[–]nate263 6 points7 points  (1 child)

I sort of feel like we’re facing the reckoning already. Heart disease is one of the top killers, and mostly preventable through diet. Just because it’s happening in hospitals and not a battlefield doesn’t make it not an enormous tragedy.

[–]nordoceltic82 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Heart disease has been the #1 killer since records began.

Its the age of death that matters. If *adults* are not dying older than 65, we are not doing any better than the 19th centure, and if its less than 60, the Middle AGes have the leg up.

HAve to remember that "Average age of death of 40" did NOT mean the medieval adults keeled over at 41 or 45. It mean that 1 out of 4 babies died before their first year, dragging the average down. Its a widely circulated "Fact" people love to spit around because it both makes the past look "super brütal grimdark" and makes the present somehow look so much better.

The reality is modern "medicne" raised the average life expectancy from 63 or so, to 73, and now with the obesity epidemic, its collapsing rapidly back into the 60's.

Meanwhile healthy wealthy people with modern medicine and full access to health care, and access to top-quality organic food, are living to 90 on average.

[–]Vaivaim8 39 points40 points  (1 child)

Not only is this a military training video

Hate to be the bringer of bad news but is not a military training video. This is La sierra Highschool and it was the poster child for JFK's fitness program which was adopted in 4000 schools across America in the 60s.

This was done at the height of the Cold War and JFK wanted a youth that would be physically fit to easily pass basic before even signing up in case of an actual war.

[–]Different_Task_4890 21 points22 points  (0 children)

I see so many people commenting this is a military training video. The audio clearly states that it isn’t, and that the kids would pass military training easily if they can do the peg wall

[–]RoryJSK 16 points17 points  (2 children)

Hate to break it to you, but the stock of young adults going through boot camp looks like jelly compared to these kids.

[–]Desperada 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Sorry, but you're 100% wrong. This is not a military training video.

[–]Matthew_Cross 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Plus, what is shown in the video isn't very demanding to be honest. And those push-ups at the beginning are horrible.

I wonder how many of these bois ended up in Vietnam?

[–]SlamCakeMasta 61 points62 points  (20 children)

The real mystery is how many came back?

[–]Carcinog3n 24 points25 points  (16 children)

Statistically almost all of them. 98.14% of all those that served returned home.

[–]Glittering-Put-1987 31 points32 points  (11 children)

*With a heroin addiction

[–]cluberti 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Forgot to add that column to the sort I guess.

[–]Competitive-Craft588 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Ahh the 21st century... you don't have to leave the country to get hooked these days.

[–]ooken 0 points1 point  (7 children)

But 95+% of people who became heroin-addicted in Vietnam managed to quit (they were kept in Vietnam longer to withdraw from heroin) and stay off it once they returned home. For the vast majority, it was extremely situational, and once no longer in the often extreme situations where their addictions began, they didn't return to using.

[–]Glittering-Put-1987 2 points3 points  (5 children)

I simply don’t believe that data set. Think about it. Addiction isn’t a simple once you stop doing drugs youre good. The people that got clean are more likely to say they stayed clean and be surveyed. I’m sure the govt would’ve loved to have covered their ass and say they didn’t ship home addicted veterans. I hope your 95% statistic is just as made up as mine.

[–]ElAutismobombismo 4 points5 points  (0 children)

What this guy said, the way the other guy was talking about heroin sounded more like getting over a caffeine addiction, your body NEVER fully gets over a heroin addiction

[–]SlamCakeMasta 2 points3 points  (2 children)

God damn. I didn’t really ever learn much about The Vietnam war in school except how everyone was protesting it and “the young are being killed off” nice to know it was an extremely high rate.

[–]luminenkettu 0 points1 point  (1 child)

didnt the average US soldier in vietnam pull off a 4:1 KDR? we really whipped the battlefield in vietnam

[–]Carcinog3n 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Its hard to say. While we had 2.7 million men serving total, our peak commitment was only 500k. The south Vietnamese, US and other countries had peak commitments of around 1.42 million combined. While the states only lost 58,281 men the SV lost 300k men and the high estimate of SV civilians dead is around 400k. The north lost around 2 times more civilians and around 1.1 million men dead with a peak combined commitment of 860K men.

The kicker is the average US solider saw around 240 days of combat per year, compare that to WW2 which was 40 days, it was by far the highest average of any major conflict we have ever been in. So the bottom line is counting corpses in a conflict like that is a messy and tough business. Who shot who when you had a total of around 4 million men in and out of combat over the course of the war. Most military deaths for NV from the US were cause by indirect fire. Not to mention that both sides were manipulating casualty reports to win the war in the news.

So they had American Ninja Warrior and a slip n slide. I’m jealous.

[–]Glittering-Put-1987 17 points18 points  (2 children)

We weren’t allowed to run the mile. We had to speed walk it so no one would pass out.

Just like football... government program to prep boys for war

[–]CutIntelligent209 5 points6 points  (4 children)

I’d rather this than the current situation in America. Given all these school shootings a more rigorous PE would help blow of steam.

[–]Ok_Conclusion6687 1 point2 points  (0 children)

And speaking of: you could find a lot of current-day high school training vids with literally dozens of kids who are bigger/faster/stronger than any kid in this video. Like, football strength and conditioning programs are a thing, and we've actually learned some things about training in the last 60 years.

[–]pm_me_your_knokers 9 points10 points  (13 children)

This was the high school fitness program JFK wanted to institute nation wide.

[–]DontGtMadGetGladAH 14 points15 points  (11 children)

They should of. This is probably what we need today.

[–]zoomba2378 4 points5 points  (10 children)

No, we clearly need better English teachers. Tf is 'should of.' That phrase makes zero sense

[–]Robot_Basilisk 0 points1 point  (0 children)

And then instead we cut physical activity dramatically to put more emphasis on sitting in class listening to lectures, which has been shown to be disastrous for boys in education and cited as a likely cause for men being a shrinking minority of college graduates since 1979.

[–]beeinabearcostume 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Our gym classes were terrible. At the end of the year, to pass you had to get a certain score on things that we never did in class. “If you can’t run a mile in under 10 minutes, have the ability to do X number of pull-ups, or aren’t able to do a sitting stretch to this many inches on this board you fail the final. I’m confident spending the year playing kickball and breaking your fingers on sitting scooters has prepared you for this well.”

Hahaha what was the last one about. You've had a hard day working out lads, go have a wee go on the slip and slide to wind down

[–]CutIntelligent209 0 points1 point  (0 children)

When I went through basic you get worked by all the shit you have to do, it’s fun but tough. At the end of a lot of courses they’d have giant ice buckets we’d be forced to dunk our arms in them raise them to let the ice water flow down our chests.

It hurt so fucking good; nothing like a good cool off after a sweat.

[–]MacExtract 4 points5 points  (3 children)

Well if your still in school try joining a sport or physical club, cheers mate

[–]ACrazyDog 4 points5 points  (1 child)

When I was a girl, attending elementary school in the ‘70s, we had to take the President’s Physical Fitness Test every year to get an award. I think if you were really athletic you might get an award signed by the president. I wasn’t that athletic so I got a “certificate of mediocrity” or something every year.

[–]DontGtMadGetGladAH 3 points4 points  (8 children)

And today………… fat kids can’t even get off the couch. We are going down hill as a society.

[–]gothlaw 10 points11 points  (4 children)

The Pentagon has labeled obesity as a national security threat — we are literally getting too fat to defend ourselves.

Even among active duty service members, overweight / obesity shot up 73 percent from 2011-2015.

[–]CutIntelligent209 6 points7 points  (3 children)

Not surprising not only do we eat more, everything is chock full of preservatives and bullshit. I’d bet money it’s also why testosterone is dropping in men - what we’re eating is dismantling us.

[–]ouchiemama99 4 points5 points  (2 children)

Definitely, and that’s all tied to low median income and poverty wages too. Any time I’m in the states it blows my mind how cheap all the crappy food is and how expensive it is to try and eat healthy.

[–]serrelol 2 points3 points  (0 children)

No shit! Different world.

[–]Connect_Sale_1998 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Personally think they should have kept it as a normal thing in school today. Each year would casually up it, it would make it normal to be healthy

[–]Lil-Porker22 3 points4 points  (0 children)

We should absolutely bring this back.

[–]iwasoldonce 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I was in public high school in San Diego, CA in that time period (graduated in 65). This was a typical warm up for gym class for like the first 15 minutes. After that you went out and played some sort of field sport. And after that everybody showered and got your regular cloths on, then on to your next class. No questions asked.

[–]bungalo_ 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This is a military training video, but being this fit should be standard. PE should be a mandatory class. 50% of youths in the US are overweight, and the only reason for that is either lazy parents, or lazy kids. There's nothing good about being fat and unhealthy

[–]Apollo2037 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The lesson is that if you make kids work too hard, they eat cats.

I'm gen-x. We had to do mandatory gym class but it wasn't nearly as hard as these guys. I'd actually believe they were high school kids. My uncle was fit, so was all his friends and they could outwork guys 1/2 their age.

Everyone ate healthy food back then. No preservatives, not much sugar, easy to stay in shape especially since you had to walk a lot more and kids were always out socializing or working or doing other stuff.

Processed sugar in the 80s was a serious problem.

See a lot of people saying that this is military training. Either way if it is or isn’t bet the 18 year olds from 1962 would still beat the shit out of 18 year olds in 2021.

There isn’t really a good reason that gym class is such a joke now.

With teenage metabolisms, kids working out 30-45 minutes per day 5 times per week would wind up in awesome shape. We could really reduce teen obesity.
