Having served my time in the US Army for a little more than 6 years, at the age of 42 I never thought I’d hear the words, “you should come talk to me” from a recruiter again. You see, my son is 17 and is really torn between joining the military and going to college. I can only guide him to make the best decision for himself, without my emotional banter. He spoke to an Army recruiter today and in doing so, I was told to call the recruiter and discuss MY reenlisting to become a drill sergeant! What the hockey stick?!#$ Oh sure back in the day this was my dream! For real! I did some training with the drill sergeant recruits and I was in love with it. But seriously, now? At this age? This is a huge consideration!
