When I found out in 2005 that older guys could now join, I found a recruiter, went on a strict physical and financial diet, signed my papers in the spring of 2006 and found myself going through basic-training at the age of 39 in October of that year.

I have been deployed to the combat zone twice, had the honor of effectively serving my country in Iraq and Afghanistan and have also trained in South Korea, Nepal, and Bangladesh. Read Less
