How many enlisted soldiers in the Guard are in their 40's? Soon to be 45 I'm wondering if I could hack a tour in Iraq. How are these middle age soldiers doing? I'm prior service (5 years in the chair-force)
GiGotti78- Their are quite a few soldiers both Active and in the Guard in their 40's. Most on Active are close to retirement and some Guard soldiers stay in for the love of the military. For the most part, soldiers in their 40's are in just as good of shape as soldiers younger than them. Of course, it is always case by case but this is an overall assumption. As long as you are in good health their is no reason not to be able to hack a tour in Iraq. I am not sure what they raised the maximum age limit to, but if you are still eligible I would see what they can do for you.
Mr. Matt is on leave for awhile and will be back at a later date.
