No it doesn't. When I tried to get into the Army about 5 years ago, the maximum age, they told me, was 34. However, you are no longer elegable for
the draft at the age of 28. So, just because they have said that even older people who can still pass the same tests as an 18 year old can now join,
there was nothing in that article saying they rasied the maximum draft age from 28 to 39.
Personally, I think they should take anyone who can pass the tests, be they 18 or that 80 year old bananaman surfer/skiier dude. If you're capable,
why discriminate based on the number of seasons you've experienced?
