Drafting guys over 60----this is funny & obviously written by a former soldier-

New Direction for any war: Send Service Vets over 60!

I am over 60 and the Armed Forces thinks I'm too old to track down terrorists. You can't be older than 42 to join the military. They've got the whole thing ***-backwards. Instead of sending 18-year olds off to fight, they ought to take us old guys. You shouldn't be able to join a military unit until you're at least 35.

For starters: Researchers say 18-year-olds think about sex every 10 seconds. Old guys only think about sex a couple of times a day, leaving us more than 28,000 additional seconds per day to concentrate on the enemy.

Young guys haven't lived long enough to be cranky, and a cranky soldier is a dangerous soldier. 'My back hurts! I can't sleep, I'm tired and hungry' We are impatient and maybe letting us kill some ******* that desperately deserves it will make us feel better and shut us up for a while.

An 18-year-old doesn't even like to get up before 10 a.m. Old guys always get up early to pee so what the hell. Besides, like I said, 'I'm tired and can't sleep and since I'm already up, I may as well be up killing some fanatical SOB......

If captured we couldn't spill the beans because we'd forget where we put them. In fact, name, rank, and serial number would be a real stretch..

Boot camp would be easier for old guys. We're used to getting screamed and yelled at and we're used to soft food. We've also developed an appreciation for guns. We've been using them for years as an excuse to get out of the house, away from the screaming and yelling.

They could lighten up on the obstacle course however. I've been in combat and didn't see a single 20-foot wall with rope hanging over the side, nor did I ever do any pushups after completing basic training.

Actually, the running part is kind of a waste of energy, too. I've never seen anyone outrun a bullet.

An 18-year-old has the whole world ahead of him. He's still learning to shave, to start up a conversation with a pretty girl. He still hasn't figured out that a baseball cap has a brim to shade his eyes, not the back of his head.

These are all great reasons to keep our kids at home to learn a little more about life before sending them off into harm's way.

Let us old guys track down those dirty rotten coward terrorists.. The last thing an enemy would want to see is a couple of million pissed off old farts with attitudes and automatic weapons who know that their best years are already behind them.

***How about recruiting Women over 50 ......with PMS !!! You think Men have attitudes !!! Ohhhhhhhhhhhh my Lord!!! If nothing else, put them on border patrol....we will have it secured the first night!

Share this with your senior friends. It's purposely in big type so they can read it.

There's more than a little truth in this message.

And I thought that someone in Navy Office was off his rocker when they asked me to consider working for them as a contractor back when I was in my late 30s.

I took great delight in politely telling them that they should have offered me more, when I was still "on the books",... I never did receive an answer. I dunno that it was really one of my best decisions, but it gave me a great deal of satisfaction.

There are some things in life that one just has to do.

Went to the qualification range with my unit. We had 2 guys, both over 50. Both shot expert. I asked them what their secret was. They told me that since they were so old and it took them 5 minutes to stand up from the prone position and they couldn't run away very fast, they figured it was easier to shoot them. Someone once asked one of them what their MOS was when they joined. I opined "00X". What is that? the newcomer wondered. "Musket Rifleman" I Replied. I got to beat my face until they got tired. It was worth it.

I remember someone saying that 20 women with PMS and a AK47 could put down the Iraqi army in 24 hours
