Do the marines or any branch ever waive the age requirement? I'm 31,but I'm still in good shape? Could I still join?
I went through Army basic with a couple guys in their 30's. I was in my late 20's.
Its not as tough as you might think. If you were in great shape you would be dissapointed. I went with guys who were in really bad shape, they got into shape. Also going in older is different, you have a different mind set, you have more fun.
I would go through Basic again, it was a lot of fun. (No sex, thats the only bad part.)
You can join the Army up to age 34.
