go for it. i had 40 yr olds with me at BCT, it's a cool experience you'll love it. but make sure you get to BCT before your 41st birthday!!

I can relate to that question as well. I am 39 and thinking about joining the National Guards as well, however I am getting conflicting answers from different recruiters

I'm shipping to Fort Jackson on 18 April; 35-Mike.

I have 8 yrs prior service, so am heading to BCT at the spry age of 48!

I'm running a couple of miles a day now to get ready, and while I might not be in the front of the pack running, I'm not going to be in the back! Out of my way young man (and get off of my lawn!) Cool

As long as you aren't picking a young guy MOS like 11C, B or other very physical MOS you are good. I have put ladies in the Army at 41 and they did fine. If you don't think you can, then in the back of your head always know there are at least 2 forty one year old ladies doing what you talked yourself out of.
