Thats it. I don't need anything from my SRB? Quantico sent me a CD with all kind of stuff on it.

Yeah, I do now. I just signed up for this web-site yesterday. Give me a break!
So do you know anyone getting in at 38 years of age with 6 years active duty service?
I sure would like to get back in. Things financially have finally worked out for me where I can come back in without reserve. Thanks, for the info. Simper Fi

You are correct. It is more than just a job. I am looking to get back in myself at 38 with 6 years service under the belt. I hope that I can. I have already been to MEPS as I have been told I was too old for the Marines. The Army said yes. I am hoping though before its to late I can change this. I have not sworn in yet. Do you have any info that could help me out?

The only people that will know is the Recruiter, if you don't get the answer you want go find another Recruiter in a different area until you do. BTW your constructive age is 32, I think the cut off is 28 for AD and 29 for Reserve thats why you need an age waiver, so in their eyes your only 32!

Mmmmm......while your 'constructive' age is your AD time minus your real age, you may still be 'over' the age limit. Contact an AD recruiter ASAP and run with it from there. But, honestly, your chances are going to be an uphill battle.

Hello, this is a great thread.
I am ex-Army (Iraq war vet), and I was discharged in December of 2005, Honorably.
I am looking to Join the Marine Corps, and start a new life as a true warrior. The Army National Guard was full of fat, old men looking forward to cushy retirement, I am still young and interested only in Action and Combat.
My interest in joining has run into two VERY LARGE speedbumps, and I need some help from my soon-to-be battle brothers in getting over them.
1. In this past Army life I was a Christian, and an administrator. After 10 or so months in the sandbox, I left as a real-life Conscientious Objector...yet still with an honorable discharge. I am no longer a Christian, and am ready to kill on command, but I have a re-enlistment code of "3".
2. I saw a Psychiatrist briefly at the V.A. about some personal issues, and he put me on some medication. I can now furnish a clean bill of health if need be.
I talked with a recruiter already, and he said I can only join with one waiver, not two. But frankly he seemed a bit inexperienced, and I am well-versed in Military paperwork enough to know that there is a way around anything for someone dedicated and motivated enough.
Points in my favor: I am in great physical condition, I was an E-4 when I left the Army, I have 3 Associates Degrees with 93 college credits.
I want to join to fight alongside the very best. Semper-Fi, Essayons.

My question is that I am 50, spent over 5 years active service, got out with a RE-1A Honorable in 1983, got out with an honorable completely in 1988. What is the age cut-off for (shudder) National Guard?
04-11-10, 08:46 AM #102
You *might* just make it. The basic regulation is that you have to be able to get '20' in prior to reaching age 60. With a 'minus' 4 years of AD you may squeak under the line.
Go talk to a recruiter TOMORROW if you are serious.

I didn't think so either, but when I did some quick research, it would appear that as long as you can make '20' by age 60.....they'll take you.
BUT, if you have something that says otherwise, by all means I'd like to know myself.
