Army Changes Enlistment Age
After months of great recruiting success, the Army has lowered the age limit for active duty and Reserve enlistment to age 34. Several months ago, the Army raised it's enlisted recruiting age to age 42 to help boost sagging recruiting numbers. However, with the now sagging economy, the Army has had no problem meeting their recruiting goals for the past several months, and therefore have reverted to the previous age limits. Under this policy, new recruits must be able to ship out to basic training before reaching the age of 35.
