Lt. Col. Aaron West, commander of the 1-290th Field Artillery Regiment, demonstrates proper push up techniques for students at Southside Elementary School in Columbus, Ind. West decided to mentor local youth after hearing a statistic that 75 percent of America's youth are ineligible to join the military for a variety of reasons.
