Suburban teens to compete on NBC’s ‘World of Dance’ BY JERRY FITZPATRICK

For Reflejos

Makayla D’Ambrosio and her dance-studio friends used to kid about appearing on the NBC competition show “World of Dance,” now in its fourth season. “We all used to joke about it,” said D’Ambrosio, a 17-year-old Fremd High School senior from Palatine. “I never thought it would happen in a million years. I watched the show every season for the past three seasons. I watched all of them and it was always like, ‘Oh my gosh. What if we were on there?’” She need not wonder any longer. D’Ambrosio and the other five members of Carol Stream-based The Difference 6

Dance Company — Haley Rovansek, 17, of Elmhurst; Sophie Gracau, 16, of Elmhurst; Allyson Hiser, 16, of Elmhurst; Johanna “JoJo” Jessen, 15, of Delafield, Wis.; and Finley Williams, 12, of Elk Grove Village — will make their national television debut during the show’s qualifying round at 9 p.m. Tuesday, June 16. “World of Dance” gives aspiring dancers the opportunity to compete for a $1 million grand prize and the title of best dancer in the world. The winner is determined by a celebrity panel of executive producer Jennifer Lopez, singer-songwriter NE-YO and Derek Hough, a sixtime champion on “Dancing with the Stars.”

Solo dancers compete against duos and crews in a five-round competition: the qualifiers, callbacks, the duels, semifinals and the World Final. D’Ambrosio and her troupe — The Difference 6 — competed in the 17-and-under Juniors division of the show, which was filmed between Feb. 21 and March 13. D’Ambrosio said The Difference 6 owes everything to Melissa Lobes, the troupe’s coach and choreographer. Lobes has been coaching D’Ambrosio since fourth grade and opened Difference Dance Company last year. Though she can’t discuss how the Difference 6 fared in the judges’ eyes, D’Ambrosio called the experience “amazing.”

“I’m not from a very big town,” she said. “Not a lot of people outside of Palatine really know what it is unless you really live near it. So, when you get the opportunity like this, which is literally worldwide and everyone can see it and everyone can see your story and see me dance, I mean, that’s the opportunity of a lifetime.” Performing in front of Lopez, Hough and NE-YO was a highlight. “It was like a dream,” D’Ambrosio said. “You walk into something that you never thought would happen in your life. You walk in and you see these people who are such big influences in the world and you’re like ‘Oh my gosh. I have the opportunity to meet them.’”

In alliance with

Nací en el Barrio del Este de Los Ángeles y nací en la pobreza, mi padre era adicto a la heroína y alcohólico. Estaba entrando y saliendo de la cárcel por robar a la gente y cuando tenía tres años de edad, abandonó a nuestra familia y nos dejó con un montón de cuentas por pagar y un montón de botellas vacías de bebidas alcohólicas en el bote de basura. Mi madre trabajó dos y hasta tres empleos solo para que no nos faltara comida en la mesa y para asegurarse de que no nos convirtiéramos en parte del sistema. Cuando era niño dormía en un colchón maloliente en un piso de concreto en un sótano húmedo donde por las noches se escuchaban los sonidos de trampas para ratones. Hubo momentos en que me despertaron tarde en la noche los rasguños de pequeñas patitas que cruzaban mis brazos, mi espalda y mi cara porque la casa estaba infestada de ratones, ratas y cucarachas. La razón por la que estoy compartiendo esto con usted es porque muchos de nosotros venimos de un lugar difícil, muchos de nosotros provenimos de hogares quebrados, fuimos maltratados y llevábamos una vida con poca o ninguna esperanza. Hemos enfrentado varias crisis a través del tiempo que han afectado a muchos en nuestra comunidad. Esta pandemia actual es solo una de las últimas en probar nuestra fuerza y resistencia. Sin embargo, la mayoría de nosotros hemos hecho todo lo que teníamos que hacer legalmente para salir de muchas situaciones diferentes, limpios ante la ley y la sociedad. Esta vida que estamos viviendo hoy con el Covid-19 pasará y sobreviviremos porque eso es lo que siempre hacemos, somos latinos. Hemos visto el impacto masivo de la pandemia en nuestra comunidad, porque muchos son trabajadores de primera línea o personas cuyos trabajos no les permiten trabajar desde casa. El Covid-19 no solo se ha llevado muchas vidas, sino que también se ha llevado muchos empleos. Hay muchas personas que se están rindiendo, se suicidan, abusan de sus seres queridos, se automedican con drogas y alcohol. Esa no es la respuesta para nadie en nuestra comunidad, así que le pido, por favor que mantenga la fe, manténgase enfocado y fuerte ... ayude a otros a buscar la ayuda disponible que puedan necesitar. Ahora que Illinois está entrando en la fase tres y las pequeñas empresas están reabriendo, por favor permanezcan juntos, apoyen a estas empresas, apóyense mutuamente con palabras de amabilidad, demostrando que también le interesa el bienestar de otros. Cuídense mutuamente y continúen poniéndose a salvo. El distanciamiento social es obligatorio y sí, es muy importante que use su máscara protectora para ayudar a detener la propagación del COVID-19. Recuerde que usar la máscara es también una muestra de respeto hacia los demás, ya que ellos, al usarlas, también muestran ese mismo respeto por usted. Desarrolle un plan para usted y su familia y comprométanse a seguirlo a medida que avanzamos hacia lo que se ha llamado la nueva normalidad. PD. ¡Los amo, y no hay nada que puedan hacer al respecto!

I was born in the Barrio of East Los Angeles and I was born into poverty, my father was a heroin addict and an alcoholic. He was in and out of jail for robbing people and at the age of three he abandoned our family leaving us with a pile of bills and a bunch of empty bottles of booze in the trash can. My mother worked two and three jobs just to keep food on the table and to make sure we did not become part of the system. As a child I slept on a smelly mattress on a concrete floor in a musty basement where at night you would hear the sounds of mousetraps popping. There were times that I would be awoken late at night by the scratches of little feet running across my arms, my back and face because the house was infested with mice, rats and roaches. The reason I am sharing this with you is because a lot of us come from a hard place, many of us from broken homes, abused and a life with little or no hope. There have been any number of crisis during the years that have affected many in our community. This pandemic is just one of the latest to test our strength and endurance. However, most all of us have done whatever we needed to do legally to come out of many different situations, clean on the other side. This life we are living today with the Covid-19 will pass and we will survive because that’s what we do, we are Latinos. We have seen the massive impact on our community, because so many are front line workers or folks who’s jobs do not allow them to work from home. Not only has Covid-19 taken many lives, it has taken so may jobs. There are many people out there who are giving up, committing suicide, abusing their loved ones, self -medicating with drugs and alcohol. That is not the answer for any in our community, so I ask, please keep the faith, stay focused and stay strong…help others seek out the help available that they might need. Now that Illinois is rolling into phase three and small businesses are reopening please stand together, support these businesses, support each other with words of kindness and caring, take care of each-other and continue to be safe. Social distancing is mandatory and yes, it’s very important that you wear your protective masks to help stop the spread of COVID-19. Remember the mask is you also showing respect for others as they show respect for you. Map out a plan of engagement for you and your family as we move forward into what is being called the new normal. PS. I love you and there is nothing you can do about it!

CAT BATTISTA, holding Cupcake the dog, poses with her team at the Aurora Area Interfaith Food Pantry. Pantry clients have increased to 9,000 during the pandemic from 2,000 18 months ago when Battista became executive director.

‘We’ll feed anyone’

That’s the motto at Aurora pantry where demand has more than quadrupled BY MARIE WILSON

For Reflejos

The Aurora Area Interfaith Food Pantry served 2,000 people a week when Cat Battista became executive director 18 months ago. Now it serves 9,000. For the past two months during the coronavirus pandemic, the number of clients has grown for a handful of reasons: People have lost jobs and income. They’ve gained fears about contagion and exposure. They’ve realized they could be at higher risk if they are older or already in weakened health. “We’ll feed anyone — no matter where they’re from, no matter what their story is,” said Battista, a former trial lawyer from St. Charles. “Our goal is to make sure everyone goes away with 100%.” By “100%,” Battista means 100% of everything a family of five would need for meals to last about a week, with nutritional items following theU.S. Department of Agriculture MyPlate guidelines. “And we throw a couple of treats in there,” she said. Because who doesn’t like cookies? In March, Battista and other pantry leaders wrote a pandemic response plan as they watched the new coronavirus affect more

and more of the world. The plan has governed operations since March 17. Operations these days include two food distributions each week following a zero-contact model with a maximum of 40 staff members and volunteers inside the pantry building at any one time. Workers and volunteers pack weekly food boxes and work with police to line up vehicles in an overflow parking lot at nearby Aurora University. Cars then are allowed into the pantry lot 30 at a time. They’re told to pop their trunks, then roll up their windows and keep them that way to avoid contact. Teams of workers and volunteers — including the executive director, who calls the process a great workout — then get their steps in by walking to deliver one food box to each waiting trunk. There are typically 700 to 800 vehicles. “It can be fun because people on the team can get a little competitive about how quick they can fill the cars,” Battista said. Distribution takes three hours, from 9 a.m. to noon, Tuesdays and Thursdays. Mondays and Wednesdays are reserved for donation drop-off from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Battista sometimes starts her work as early as 5 a.m.

She used to litigate nursing home abuse cases, stepping in after situations already had caused pain to try to find resolution. Now, Battista said, she finds her pantry work a fulfilling way to help out before something goes wrong, before food insecurity turns into malnutrition or worse. “I decided I want to pursue what I call front-end justice instead of back-end justice,” she said. “I liked the idea of working on the front lines and doing things that were more preventive.” Pantry crowds are starting to decrease, as Battista said clients might be regaining confidence in grocery stores. But the pantry is always accepting help. To donate or view a shopping list of needed items, visitaurorafoodpantry.org. Into the pantry lot 30 at a time.

LA OMS RECOMIENDA USO GENERAL DE MASCARILLAS Carolina Pikakacho Fronteras de la Noticia - EFESalud Los contagios diarios de COVID-19 alcanzaron en la última jornada un nuevo récord de casi 130.000 casos, lo que indica que aún se está lejos de alcanzar el pico mundial de una pandemia que ya afecta a 6,51 millones de personas, según la Organización Mundial de la Salud (OMS). América se mantiene como la región con mayor número de casos totales, con 3,08 millones de contagios, seguida de Europa (2,21 millones) y Oriente Medio, donde las infecciones ascienden a 587.000. Los pacientes recuperados en el mundo son ya más de 3,2 millones, cerca de la mitad del total, mientras 53.000 pacientes se encuentran en estado grave o crítico, de acuerdo con los datos de las redes sanitarias nacionales. En una actualización de su guía de consejos sobre este elemento de protección, la organización considera que a medida que los países van levantando las medidas de con#namiento y las restricciones de movimiento es necesario que las personas las utilicen para protegerse en si-

tuaciones en las que no se puede aplicar la distancia social recomendada. Las máscaras recomendadas para el público en general son las de tela, que deben cumplir ciertas condiciones para que realmente representen una protección para el portador y para el resto de la comunidad. La experta del Departamento de Emergencias Sanitarias de la OMS, April Beller, explicó a Efe que hay nuevas evidencias cientí#cas (a partir de investigaciones de las universidades de Stanford y Colorado) sobre las máscaras de tela, los diversos materiales de los que puede estar hechas y el nivel de protección que con#eren. Beller explicó que lo ideal es combinar las telas y que la mascarilla tenga tres capas, utilizando el material más absorbente (por ejemplo, el algodón) más cerca de la boca, lo que hará que, si se tose, las gotas de saliva se queden allí. Una excepción debe ser hecha para las personas de más de 60 años o que padecen enfermedades crónicas, a quienes ahora la OMS también recomienda el uso de mascarillas médicas.

Census Q&A with Viviana Barajas

Census Coordinator Illinois Coalition for Immigrant and Refugee Rights How is Illinois doing in terms of Census response? If you go based on the numbers, Illinois is doing a great job and is actually a national leader in terms of 2020 Census response rates. However, if you look past the numbers and you hone in on the areas where our immigrant communities and our Black and Brown communities live, we still have work to do to get a full count.

With so much going on, why is it still important for people to fill out the Census right now? During a time in which we are experiencing a global pandemic, alongside protests declaring that Black lives matter, it can be easy to dismiss the importance of filling out the Census - but doing so would be a major mistake with long-term ramifications. We are all witnessing in real time the devastating impact that years of disinvestment and a lack of representation have caused Black and Brown communities across the state - and how our communities have been pitted against each-other for resources. While filling out the Census alone might not solve the fundamental issues that prevent our communities from thriving, it is an important element in helping solve some of the issues that continue to hurt Black communities and people of color in Illinois. In the face of so much uncertainty, one thing is guaranteed - the number of people who fill out the Census will determine how much funding and representation our communities receive for the next 10 years. And we definitely know that when communities are underfunded and underrepresented, Black communities suffer the most. Every year, our federal government allocates nearly $1.5 trillion towards health care, food, housing assistance, education, and more. Our communities deserve their fair share of funding and representation in order to voice how those resources should be allocated. If there’s one thing coming up more than ever today, it’s that these resources need to be spent on services that help our communities thrive: education, hospitals, youth programs, housing, and infrastructure. We know our communities are safer and healthier when they have the resources they need. Right now, we have an opportunity to completely change where we put our resources as a state. And for Black and Brown communities, reallocation of those resources relies on a complete Census count.

How can people get involved? Here are a few ways you can get involved right now: 1. Complete your Census! Head to my2020census.gov today to participate. There’s still time, you haven’t missed any deadlines. 2. Tell your family and neighbors to participate. The best way to get the word out is by talking one-on-one to people you know. Ask them if they’ve participated. It only takes 10 minutes, and will mean resources for schools, roads, and hospitals in our communities. 3. Want to have an even bigger impact? Join us for Illinois Immigrant and Refugee Census Day on June 17th, Black Census Day of Action on June 19, and LGBTQIA+ Census Day of Action on June 29. All of these events are part of Illinois Census Month. Head over to icirr.org/census to sign up and be a part of Illinois Immigrant and Refugee Census Day.

Virtual Graduation Ceremonies to Celebrate Class of 2020 U-46 to host commencement ceremonies June 13

ELGIN – More than 2,700 students will celebrate their graduation on June 13 as School District U-46 hosts virtual ceremonies for our five high schools. Links to the ceremonies will be shared in advance with families and on District and school websites and social media. The recorded ceremonies will later be posted on those platforms as well. The U-46 Board of Education, Superintendent Tony Sanders, Assistant Superintendent for Secondary Schools Instruction and Equity Lela Majstorovic, and high school principals are all part of the recorded virtual graduation ceremonies. “This is not how any of us expected to celebrate the Class of 2020, but we have done our best to make this virtual ceremony meaningful for our graduates and their families,” Superintendent Sanders said. “I am proud of how our seniors have faced this challenge, with resiliency, humor, kindness and understanding. We are celebrating differently this year, but we are still united.” U-46 usually holds five separate graduation ceremonies on one day at the Sears Centre in Hoffman Estates. Given the social distancing restrictions in place due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the District followed guidance from local public health departments and regional offices of education in creating a celebration plan that could be accomplished virtually. The District has also set aside funds for the graduating classes to hold an in-person event, determined by the schools, as soon as allowed under social distancing guidelines. As part of the process, school teams delivered to students their caps and gowns and any associated stoles or cords. The seniors then received instructions on how to upload a photo of themselves in their cap and gown. Graduation speeches from principals, district administrators, and appointed seniors were recorded on a decorated stage at South Elgin High School. The resulting ceremonies will be streamed at 3 p.m. Saturday, June 13. For the third year, the District will be honoring 47 seniors who enrolled in the full-time Dual Credit program on the campus of Elgin Community College. These students, who must demonstrate certain college readiness benchmark scores for acceptance, take all of their courses at ECC. They earn both high school and college credit for each class in the program. The District is expanding the program in the 2020-21 school year to include high school seniors and juniors. The District expects to see its first group of students conferred with both their high school diploma and associate’s degree graduate in the Class of 2022. One of this year’s Dual Credit students is

Larkin High School’s Celina Sarangaya, who will graduate with 26 college credits. She said the biggest draw for her was to save money on college and avoid putting a financial strain on her parents, but she also liked the challenge of taking more rigorous courses and becoming more independent. The situation became even more challenging after the pandemic forced her to learn and study in a small home shared with nine other family members. But after earning a 3.7 GPA in the fall, she ended this spring with a 4.0. Once she receives her associate’s degree at ECC next year, Sarangaya plans to then attend the University of Illinois, either the Urbana-Champaign or Chicago campus. “Being in an environment other than my home is a huge motivator, and that was lost during online learning,” she said. “So I had to constantly remind myself why school is so important to me: To become a first-generation college student and achieve the life my parents came to America for.” For the fourth year, U-46 will also issue a special honor to graduates who demonstrate a high level of proficiency in one or more languages in addition to English. One hundred and eighty-two members of the Class of 2020 will earn the State of Illinois Seal of Biliteracy and 252 students the Commendation, given to students who have demonstrated significant progress toward achieving a high level of proficiency. “That’s more than 400 awards in seven different languages!” said Jacob VandeMoortel, U-46’s Coordinator for K-12 Social Studies and World Languages, adding that students who earn the Seal qualify for two years of credit in that language at any Illinois post-secondary program. The Class of 2020 graduates include 20 Superintendent’s Scholarship recipients. The program honors students who are first-generation college students with a $1,000 scholarship. They are also being featured on the District’s Facebook page and on a special page in the Class of 2020 section. One of those Superintendent’s Scholars is Ian Rabanal, who is graduating from Bartlett High School with several other community scholarships and honors from his participation in the BHS band program. He said finishing up his senior year via distance learning was challenging, but had its benefits. “For students who truly put in the work and tried to keep up during this difficult time, I believe they learned personal responsibility … communication, organization, and time management skills,’’ said Rabanal, who is headed to the College of DuPage before pursuing a business management degree at a university. Fifty-two graduates rank among the top

Pistoletazo de salida para la campaña “Race to Zero” de las Naciones Unidas Carlos Morales Fronteras de la Notiica - EFEverde La campaña global “Race to Zero”, una iniciativa de las Naciones Unidas para promover que todos los países y empresas del mundo alcancen cuanto antes un nivel cero de emisiones de dióxido de carbono, arrancó el viernes 5 de Junio con ocasión del Día Mundial del Medio Ambiente. El proyecto está vinculado a la Conferencia de las Naciones Unidas sobre el Cambio Climático (COP26), que tendrá lugar en 2021 en Glasgow, Reino Unido, con un año de retraso sobre la fecha prevista inicialmente -noviembre de 2020- con motivo de las medidas de seguridad contra la COVID-19. Entre los participantes, la secretaria ejecutiva de la Convención Marco de las Naciones Unidas sobre Cambio Climático, Patricia Espinosa, recalcó la importancia de aprovechar este momento, en el que muchos países sufren las consecuencias económicas de la crisis de coronavirus en sus territorios. “Aunque no fuimos advertidos de la COVID-19, hemos sido advertidos durante mucho tiempo del cambio climático”, recordó Espinosa, instando a la colaboración entre todos los sectores de la población para salir de esta crisis con una economía más verde. Esta situación, añadió la secretaria, también ha servido para demostrar “que las sociedades pueden, cuando es necesario, unirse para abordar los retos globales con respuestas atrevidas”, algo que solo es posible, añadió, a través de un “multilateralismo inclusivo”. En referencia al pacto europeo que promete acabar por completo con las emisiones de dióxido de carbono para 2050, Espinosa ha asegurado que es imposible llegar hasta 2050 “sin 2020”, por lo que esta campaña “no es para el futuro, sino para el presente”. También participó en el evento de inauguración la ministra de Medio Ambiente de Chile, Carolina Schmidt, que aseguró que uno de los puntos fuertes de esta campaña es “la inclusión del pilar social, que por primera vez sirve como ancla para todos nuestros compromisos climáticos”. La campaña “Race to Zero” está además respaldada por los dos “Campeones de Alto Nivel” de la 25ª y de la 26º Conferencia de las Naciones Unidas sobre Cambio Climático, respectivamente el chileno Gonzalo Muñoz y el británico Nigel Topping. Iberdrola o Nestlé son algunas de las empresas que ya han se han adherido a la campaña, que constituye la mayor alianza de compañías, inversores, ciudades y regiones creada hasta la fecha para este $n.

"Soy un hombre latino, homosexual, casado con un hombre árabe, viviendo en los Estados Unidos, o sea yo soy una amenaza para esta gente por donde lo veas”, comentó al conductor de radio y televisión Enrique Santos, a quien también compartió los te-

mores a los que se enfrenta día a día. "Vivo esto todos los días, no tan expuesto como todos porque vivo aislado, vivo en mi casa, soy tranquilo, voy de aquí (casa) al trabajo, del trabajo vuelvo a casa, del estudio mío a la casa, pero vivimos aquí, y escuchamos las historias, y sentimos… o sea agarrar el carro y cruzar el desierto y parar a tomar un café en un dinner puede ser peligroso, pero yo no crecí pensando que Estados Unidos es así… Estados Unidos es así ya, siempre ha estado así", compartió.

LA HISTORIA REAL DETRÁS DE FORREST GUMP

Carlos Morales, Fronteras de la Noticia - sensacine “La vida es como una caja de chocolates”, decía Forrest Gump en esa famosa escena en la que comienza a contarnos toda su historia, pasando por ese momento en su infancia en el que le dijeron que no era exactamente brillante, su primer encuentro con Jenny, su gran habilidad para correr, que lo llevó a ser una estrella del fútbol en la universidad, y $nalmente, el exitoso negocio que creó en honor al gran amigo que perdió en la guerra. Forrest Gump, que, de acuerdo con la película, nació un 6 de junio de 1944, es una de las películas más icónicas en la historia del cine y su historia nunca deja de conmovernos (intenta no llorar en esa escena en la que Forrest y su hijo se sientan juntos a $losofar sobre lo más importante en la vida) y, aunque ese hombre amante del ping pong y los Nike Cortez no existe realmente, su historia está inspirada en personas e historias reales. La de Forrest (que corre por todo el mundo sin decir una sola palabra, y

hay un hombre real que intentó lo mismo) es una historia de un “rechazado” logrando cosas que el mundo le dijo que no podría lograr, con una versión del mundo narrada desde el punto de vista de una persona sin los peores vicios de la humanidad (como el cinismo y el pesimismo) que nos enseña que lo único imposible es lo que no nos atrevemos a intentar, y tiene su origen en unas cuantas personas que inspiraron a su creador y en un proyecto militar que existió realmente y que permitió que personas con algún tipo de discapacidad o problemas de aprendizaje fueran a la guerra de Vietnam. La película es una adaptación de la novela de Winston Groom que lleva el mismo nombre, quien usó fragmentos, detalles y partes de sus amigos de la infancia para contar la historia de este hombre que fue testigo de algunos de los momentos más relevantes de la historia. Principalmente, Groom creó a Forrest tomando la forma de hablar y los sueños de sus amigos de la infancia. La vida de Forrest está inspirada en parte en las conversaciones que un

hombre llamado Jimbo Meador y Groom solían tener. el acento de Meador se convirtió en la base de la forma de hablar del personaje. Según cuenta la historia, cuando estaba en su etapa inicial, la forma de hablar de Meador salió a relucir y el profesor de voz de Tom Hanks incluso viajó hasta Alabama para grabarlo para que el actor pudiera escuchar su voz, estudiarla e imitarla el acento para la película. Y la voz es solo uno de los detalles. El Forrest Gump fue tomado del general del Ejército Confederado de la Guerra de Secesión, Nathan Bedford Forrest y el personaje incluso dice en un punto del libro que Nathan es uno de sus ancestros. En cuanto a la película, el guionista Eric Roth se inspiró en un soldado real, en el sargento y héroe de guerra Sammy Davis (que no debes confundir con el legendario músico) para crear el acto más heroico de Forrest en la guerra. El 8 de noviembre de 1967, Davis, quedó convencido de que no podrían sobrevivir a un ataque, así que decidió salir y disparar a quemarropa a los soldados del Vietcong que avanzaba directamente a ellos. Un mortero estalló cerca y Davis cayó, pero se levantó y siguió disparando hasta que no quedaron soldados ene-

migos frente a él, después se dirigió al río, encontró a 3 soldados heridos y empezó a disparar de nuevo para poder cubrirlos y permitir que otros soldados se acercaran a recatarlos. Davis $nalmente recibió un disparo en la espalda, pero sobrevivió y, un año después, recibió una medalla de honor por parte del presidente Lyndon B Johnson y, al igual que con Forrest, esto fue transmitido por televisión. La última referencia fue descubierta por los fans de la película, quienes creen que Forrest Gump podría haber sido parte del llamado Proyecto 100.000, conocido también como McNamara's Folly, McNamara's Morons o McNamara's Mis$ts. Este controversial programa fue creado en los años 60 por el Departamento de Defensa de los Estados Unidos para reclutar soldados que, normalmente, no habrían logrado pasar los exámenes físicos y psicológicos que los soldados debían cumplir para formar parte del ejército. El programa fue impulsado por el secretario de defensa Robert McNamara y fue un intento por enviar más soldados a un frente muy necesitado de cuerpos, y terminó en 1971. De acuerdo con un fan Forrest tenía un coe$ciente intelectual muy bajo, lo que le habría impedido unirse al ejército en otras circunstancias, por lo que tendría sentido que fuera parte de este programa, aunque ni Roth ni el autor del libro han aceptado que esta teoría sea cierta.
