I heard of this about a month ago but aparently only the Army has bumped the recruitment age up and the other services havent as yet followed. Well they say todays 40 is the new 30 and 30 is the new 20. Seems the Army may agree. Hell im 40 An could feaseably join. I wonder if they have a geezer platoon in basic for guys like me? I predict as these War's on terror continue we may see another bump or two up the age ladder. Also this age extension seems to be Enlisted only. What do you folks think?

I served in the UK reserved armed forces, and one of the recruits into the intelligence section was 40 at the time. he was fit and strong so they took him on - he ran rings around alot of the younger men there at the time. he was a great big mountain of a man, but really kind with it - he just loved all the 'cammo and ammo' as he called it. Age is no barrier in my eyes, its fitness and strentgh that can be the real barrier.
