Red face Basic training for female 38years old

Hi! I got it in my head to join the army at 38 years old.
Delayed for Ft. Jackson till 20090728.
I'm scared out of my mind that I won't fit in and end up solo the whole time.
I'm a very youthful and athletic female, you would guess my age no more than 26.
But the whole teenager thing has me worried as to how I will be able to do.
I 'm scared truthfully as to what's in store for someone my age.
Hopefully they won't call me granny or anything.
Plus I hear that they make the oldest person the platoon leader, I'm extremely quite...
I don't talk about my worries with anyone I know, I don't want them to think I made a
mistake so I keep it to myself.

Just venting a little..thanks!
