    Thanks,

    I am pretty sure you will make it. I am trying myself. Don't really want to go Army.

    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?
    Thanks,
    Nate

    You will need an off-contract waiver and Age waiver so far. Are you wanting AD or Reserves?

    I am looking to go Active. I want to make the Marine Corps my career. I was a 6014 F-4 jet engine mech. They phased the F-4 out 6 months after I enlisted and went to the F-18. After 3 years working on the Visiting Aircraft Line in Beaufort S.C. I got orders to go down the street to Parris Island and work as a PMI witch at the time did not have an MOS attached to it. I did that for 3 years until my EAS. Clint was in office working military cut backs and the Career Jammer gave me the option of Field Wire-man or Public Affairs Officer. I had no interest in either and asked to go infantry. I was told the only choice I had were these two or get out. So guess what I did. I was 25 and stupid knowing what I know now I would have taken anything. I really have missed the Corps. So do you think it is possible to get in?

    Holy Cow an F-4??? Start calling you Gramps....JUST KIDDING!!!!
    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.

    I weep for what this country is becoming, and fear for my children and grandchildren's future if any more democrats gain national office. We lose more and more freedoms every single day to creeping nannystatism and those who vote for Democrats only want to increase that. Anyone voting for a 'dem' is someone who likely wants to take everything YOU have worked for and mortgage your kids future as well.

    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?


  11. #101
    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.

    Depends on the state, some it's 35 others it's 42. Sorry but your constructive age is 45, I don't see you getting in.


  13. #103
    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.
