"While the Marine Corps isn’t seeing as many injuries caused by heavy loads, service officials are still concerned over the amount of weight troops carry. The more weight they carry, the less able they are to chase down a fast-moving enemy."

Speak for yourself. I am retired AF and spent 11 years as an SP. Spent many thousands of hours carrying rucks, A3 bags, ammo, rifles, machine guns, grenade launchers, etc. Mr right rotator cuff was destroyed because of it. Generalizations always have exceptions.
