    Health Readiness needs the same visibility as deadlined equipment. Each human being not medically ready requires interventions with leaders understanding when that human being will be health ready again. Every Soldier should be considered a world class athlete but the trainers are just not assigned to units that would enabled strength training, diet, and tracking progress to build such an entity in our Army. Battalion surgeons should also know every Soldier in his/her unit: health status, tobacco use or not, overweight, metabolic scores on physical fitness, HEDIS compliance, etc. Health readiness in the home station must be optimal and somehow maintained during deployments.
