New poster to the forum, long time lurker. I'm 28 and I'm seriously considering joining the marines. I have a good job and I like what I do, but I have this longing to join the military. I've had this feeling for years, before I went to college and after I got out. I don't want to look back 30yr from now and wish I had served my country. I fully understand that my enlistment will lead to me to the middle east to support our troops already there. Am I too old? How do I start the process EDIT: been talking with a recuiter and have a question about age waiver. I'm told I can't get into boot camp after i turn 29. any info on age waivers would be greatly appreicated. thanks. Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
