Morale: Hit Me, But Don't Hurt Me


November 4, 2009: American soldiers in South Korea have been allowed to resume boxing with each other. Such activities were banned last year when a U.S. soldier collapsed during a boxing match and died. After that, all recreational sporting events that involved “high risk contact” were banned.

But according to the new rules, soldiers will have to undergo physical exams, and more precautions will be imposed to avoid fatal hits.
