I am in an unusual position I have two children - a boy and and girl. Both of my kids are Army veterans. My daughter was an infantry unit armor and my son was 11B (Grunt) and was part of the Iraq invasion in 2003.
I did notice that after training both kids became very strong and spent a lot of time in the gym. Getting strong is part of the culture but it helps you get the job done.
I think it was Patton who said that physical fitness is the most important quality a soldier can have.

Just curious...was your daughter a 45B or 45K? Assigned to an FSB or MSB? She wasn't actually assigned to an infantry unit as per manning table, was she...? I appreciate their service...
