All Young Republicans Now Eligible for Active Duty: It's not just for Reservists anymore.
Well, it appears that the Army has now raised the maximum age for active duty from 34 to 39. [Yes, it's not just for reservists any more.] What that will do for the twenty-year retirement when the maximum age for active-duty remains 55 is another matter. [Of course, we'll still be in Iraq in significant numbers then.] If recruiting is going so well, why did the Army even consider this step?
Now, every Young Republican is eligible to enlist, both active-duty and reserve. Will any of them join President Bush's "noble calling"?
I doubt it.
