Yeah Doc Snake, I know the feeling, I'm 55 and way out of shape, if they need me back, we must be in a real world of hurt. If they start attacking us by ground forces, I got my Winchester ready.

I'm only 50 myself, but it seems to me that if someone was needed THAT badly, vets oughtta be available for "specialized" jobs (on the domestic or foreign fronts), but ONLY if they want to. It's possible a few vets know a trick here or there that might help the kids stay alive and complete their missions. Others could possibly use a bit of change.

Could also be that if an oldster wants to come back, a job in the rear would free someone to show his or her stuff.

I never was in combat, although I spent some time in the Corps ('73-'76), so I know NOTHING: in other words, I don't consider myself a "Vietnam Vet". However, I say that if the government wants combat vets back--in whatever capacity--they should (a) make it damned well worth their time, or (b) leave them the hell alone.

Post I got an application for the Army Chaplaincy

I got an application for chaplain in the Army. On the bottom it said, "If you are over 35 don't bother applying." Oh well, I was going to sign up but I'm toooooooo old. Maybe other jobs are open but my speciality isn't open. Of course I can still shoot pretty well, but I'm too old and slow for sniper school. Not much left for me.

Keith

P.S. I did get an application for chaplain, and it did say that you had to be under 35.
