  • Current age limit & related

    For 2011 what is the age limit and does it differ by State, (I live in NH but on the MA border.) Also what are the over 40 physicals like. Thanks in advance, 41yr old with 8 years prior.

    For enlistees, I believe they have to ship BEFORE they turn 42. The over 40 physicals involve a prostate exam and I think a cholesterol check?

      Also an EKG. I think the cholesterol is just one more tube of blood. No biggie.

        For every year of prior service time, you can be one year older then the age limit so you are in good shape. Also for the physical you'll get the certain extra attention from a doctors finger.

                  re: extra attention: it's really not that bad in the civilian world, where you get to select your doctor. I have a Nurse Practicioner, and she has a pretty good bedside manner. No standing with elbows on the table, it's curl up in a fetal position on the table. The key is to select a lady because her fingers are generally smaller than a man's.

                  She doesn't spend much time down there either. it's pretty quick.
