609 Pound Soldier

When I found the World War II Army Enlistment Record for Woodrow Grider, I was surprised to see his weight listed as 609.  Since these were US records, I’m assuming it’s pounds instead of kilograms -- 609 kilograms would be 1343 pounds!


Even at 86 inches (7 feet 2 inches), 609 pounds would be gigantic.  I seriously doubt that World War II US Army uniforms came in XXXXXXXXL.
