I hardly think Mario needs any of the laughably described "rigorous ... physical training program comparable to a military style boot-camp" which results in their final exam of 15 push ups (oh and six trigger pulls with each hand - is there really someone out there who cannot do that?). You can't enter boot camp without doing 15 push ups. They hold people indefinitely at the reception station or bust them out entirely.
Any of these people like Shaq, Steven Siegal, etc. are always going to be accompanied by vets.
