Calling all Yeller Elerfants!
The DoD may be asking Congress to raise the maximum age for enlistment! Just what the keyboard commandos and I-was/am-too-old Chickenhawks need to put a little steel in their spines! Now it's not just the Young Republicans who can show their mettle by enlisting but so can those like Mr. Doughy Pantload himself, Jonah Goldberg. Soon the excuse of being "too old" will not longer be operative! Beloved Leader will be able to pass on orders for his war straight to the men who want it most as they carry a weapon for the cause, because they don't want to be missing out on those "Last Throes" or anything.The Defense Department quietly asked Congress on Monday to raise the maximum age for military recruits to 42 for all branches of the service.
The administration also asked for an Army-only test of a $1,000 referral bonus that would be paid to current soldiers if they get someone to enter the Army and make it through basic and advanced training. Now, the Pentagon wants that payment to be $2,500.Woo-Hoo! Jonah, don't delay! Nathan Taylor, they're waiting for you! Now some of those other "Young Republicans" who seem to be "Young" to the age of better than 35 can look at throwing their support and bodies toward enlisting and serving. After all, they voted for it...now they have their chance to serve, where it might not have existed before.
