The military has raised many of its max recruiting ages to 42! The idea is to be able to complete a 20-year career (and be eligible for a military retirement) before you can start collecting Social Security. The new CENTCOM, ADM Fallon, has already turned 62 but the Senate gave him an age waiver during his interview.

But nothing that's nearly as stressful as what I'm doing now.
That's how I ended up deciding to ER. I thought that I'd cast around for a few years and decide to start another career but... five years later... I'm pretty sure that ER is
I got real tired of the diagnostic tests & career surveys that'd suck down an hour or two of my life only to conclude that I'd make an excellent nuclear engineer, teacher, or department head.
