    I see nothing wrong with it. Todays adults are healthier, and in better shape.

    In that case it's the worse thing to happen to the Army since the Army Of One bullshit.

    In my opinion, not to offend anybody, but i would rather have 30 year olds who have experienced a lot more then 20 year olds in war. Most of them would make better decisions throughout the lessons they have learned. I would not want to have a young person to be in a combat situation if there are older people that are experienced stress...

    But then again, i am not in the military yet so i have no idea...

    If they increase the active duty age limit like they did for the reserves, I wouldn't need a waiver. My prior service will get me in the door, then. :wiggle:
