    I'm 37 and I decided to join the guard's active first program as a 35M.
    At 37 is this to "old"?I know I am young enough to join but is that still
    "old" to begin?

      No I'm not in yet.I want to go into the active first guard program.It was between MP and Human intelligence collector.I like both.I was a corrections
      officer for 10 years-(Not any more,thank god) so MP had an appeal.But all
      the research I done 35M just appeals to me more.I am non prior service and I guess I'm going backwards in the fact most people join the Army then get out
      and become corrections officers,police officers and intelligence officers where I went the other direction.I know I'll be the "old man"during basic and AIT and I don't mind that I just want to be able to do all the PT required.

              Kiss rocks...

              I have a question about Active First since it has been brought up. Is your civilian job protected while you serve the “active” part? I know your pretty safe while performing traditional Guard work, but how about the time your active?

                No its not. Active, you belong to the federal gov't and your position is not required to be held since you wont be tentatively scheduled to come back.

                            ...

                            Age is just a number, I am 38 and I am home for exodus....2 weeks of Reception and 3 weeks of BCT so far, piece of cake. The hardest part is just missing my wife and football games.

                            Trust me there will always be at least one or two fat 18 year olds in your platoon that you can smoke on runs and marches! :eek: :D

                            If you have the desire to serve, do it! I have had roughly 7 Drill SGT's give me a hard time about how old I am...I just try not to smile- ;) Wait until I get to OCS

                              Wow! I was 43 when I joined the guard. But I was prior service.

                              It takes a lot of guts to do something like that at 41! You certainly have my respect!
