I went to the recruiting office (US Army) with a young guy from work who wants to join up, to make sure they didn't feed him a line of sh*t (we all know how they are), and to make sure they didn't do the same to another guy from work who went earlier. The Reserve recruiter came in, and told me that I could just barely squeeze by the age limit. I have the paperwork in front of me now. All I need to do is decide when I want to go to Ft Knox for training (going 19D, so I have to "re-train"- I was 13B, but I want to get a little closer this time). I'm an AMERICAN, and if my country goes to war, so do I.

They subtract your time in service from your age and go by that

I was just about to e-mail ya, asking which units were around here, so I can call 'em. I know how the Army works, and I ain't going to train as a scout, only to end up as a supply clerk, or in NBC

I'm in Spartanburg, so the drive is no problem. I told the recruiter that I would drive up to 100 miles, as long as it was combat arms, either Infantry or Armor.
