Chris Christie Orders National Guard Leader to Slim Down

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie has given the head of the National Guard 90 days to slim down to meet military fitness obligations.

The order comes after it was revealed Air Force Brig. Gen. Michael L. Cunniff was reprimanded by the Pentagon last year for his excessive weight and for missing physical fitness tests.

In a statement Tuesday, Mr. Christie’s office said the governor, who serves as commander in chief of the 8,600 citizen soldiers in the Guard, will give Gen. Cunniff 90 days to “meet his obligations,” The Associated Press reported.
