The majority of recruits are gonna be alot younger then you. Probably 18-21 years old. But I'm sure there will be a few guys around your age.

Ya like he said, you will be the minority there. But keep in mind the Enlistment age was raised to 42 if I'm not mistaken. If someone can prove me wrong please do. So you've got a couple years if you want to join

42 is the golden age still to join the active Army. The national guard recently reduced its age limit since it was overstrength.

There have been mothers at 41 going through basic and making it. You do fine.
