    I’m selling my home and gettin married. I want to leave in November. If they go back to the age restriction of 27/28 would that possibly void my entrance because I would be 29 entering boot? I understand the fiscal year starts oct 1.

    Did someone tell you they are changing the age restrictions back to 28? If not that seems kinda irrational to worry about it. Just tell your recruiter you want to ship in November and just wait in DEP until then. I would think you would be fine even if they did change the rule because you received a ship date under the current rules.

    My experience is irrelevant to your current situation.  Your age question made this old geezer calculate my age at enlistment.  My enlistment age was at 41 years, 28 days, coming off of a service hiatus of 11 years, 10 months.  May you be as blessed as I was to enlist with time running out.

    Hey Swimmer,

    Here's my most recent experience. I'm 30 going on 31 and I planned on going into DEP and heading in after the new year so I could save, play and ski all winter. My dreams were killed when I went to MEPS. Sat down with my recruiter and she very kindly told me a story about the fiscal year and reduced recruitment numbers for 2020.

    Basically, she told me that if even if you join DEP and you feel safe n cozy with a perceived sense of being "grandfathered in" ... if the policy changes to only allow 27 y/o in after Oct 1, 2019 (which is extremely likely) ... you will be disqualified and dismissed from DEP. My recruiter also told me that all recruit reservations for the remainder of the year have been put on hold and she's unsure if they're going to open the calendar back up.

    So, lo and behold, I saw my recruiter and did MEPS four weeks ago, and I will be entering basic training first week in Sept. There goes my last winter of freedom for a couple years ;-) All for the sake of getting on the water, ASAP.

    Im sure you've gotten more info since your last post. Good luck!
