    Yes....I'm Prior service USMC so the only Jobs I can go for are the Spec Op jobs...EOD , TACP, SOWT , SERE , PJ....I already qualified for EOD , TACP and SOWT...my first choice is EOD.

    PJ is the hardest ....but some former PJ guys told me there was a 44 year old going through the PJ pipeline ( when they went through in mid 90's..I'm assuming he was also Prior service)

    Air Force ... age limit is 39

    I have been to 3 AF PAST test's ( need to do 2X 25m under water swim, 500m surface swim , 1.5 mile run in 10:00, 10 pullups , 55 situps in 2 min and 55 pushups in 2 min IIRC)

    probably about 10 - 15 guys each time.....I came in first ( the first time i took it) and probably came in top 3 - 5 the next time I took it.

    while I'm definitely not the best PT God.....I'm not the worst....lol

    Ton of lost income, but did some growing up, traveled, expanded my worldview, gained some new interests, learned some stuff, and met a few good people.

    Man, imagine going through boot again after being out for so long and being so much older than any of the DIs. I sometimes get a wild hair about joining the Army on an option 40 contract but I'd have to go through ALL of boot since it's been 14 years.
