The short answer is that the probability of making catastrophic life or death decisions/actions while sleep deprived, malnourished and injured with no access to full medical care unless you are medivac’d out as a casualty requires a high standard of medical fitness for duty.

I live next to Pendleton and we lose marines every couple of months while training, never mind fighting ISIS in a war with an enemy that publicly rapes and tortures children to death in the public square.

I am attaching a link to the actual standards because I have seen a lot of people who “know” things that are not necessarily accurate.
