My buddy lost his job about 6-7 months ago. He then started to take classes to finish up in school since he doesn't have a job. Now he is in a rut because he has no income and cant afford college. They are not offering him financial aid and loans is out of the question for him since he doesn't know when he will be able to finish up. He was thinking about joining the Army. Is 27 to old to join the army and what would limit him if he joins at 27? What are the pros and cons on this? Advice would be greatly appreciated.
