    At what age are you considered too old to join the Military in the U.S.??

    21?


    25?

    30?



    35?

    Also, will having a college degree help get a higher ranking at all?

    Depends on the branch. Marines is 28 I believe, but you can get age waivers.

    Most people join by 24 I would say, but not sure on requirements... I would assume it varies

    Air Force = 28 for active duty

    You can be older if going reserves/guard I believe. Might have to cross-reference that though.

    Also, having a college degree would help you immensly. You can go in as an officer. But if you really want to be out there fighting you could enlist and with the credits you'd go in at an advanced rank. Officers get big bucks though. It's up to you really.

    You can still get Navy and Army. Navy goes until 32, I believe, and Army is up until like...38 or something.

    some thing i read that described well how soldiers spend time in war--long periods of extreme boredom punctuated by moments of sheer terror.

    I guess you win some, you lose some. But the overall job description feels more fitting to me..

    it varies
    you can google the age limits for every branch
    and the age limits are really more like guidelines than anything
    my dads in the army and he had the opprotunity to go to airborne school recently and he's well over the age limit
    he didnt go though
