It's my understanding, When applying for branches of the military your age is subtracted from your years of military service, and you need 20 years to be able To retire and meet the Threshold for retirement to qualify
I'm 43 and served 4.5 yrs in the usmc at 1mar div recon co. I'm was hoping to join PSU, in Mass as an ME. My job is super deployment friendly, and my kids are almost all over 18. I have 2 that are 14 and 15, I was Hopeing to get a gi bill and transfer it to them or 1 ect.
My daughter is 18 years old and applying to be at the port security unit ME, and I was hoping that we can serve together go out on missions and deploy, would be some good times!
Im 43 but in extremely good condition I do 2 mile open ocean swims 4 x per week, Deep sand running 4 miles prior to swimming, on top of lifting weights jujitsu grappling ect. Avid shooter
I have no debt my house is paid for, ive been at my job for 20 yrs, looking for adventure, and to work in a high tempo operational enviroment, in high stress, with top notch teams.
my understanding I would need the following waivers (?):
_Age 43 (-4 prior serve puts me at 39)
_Discharge Re-3 usmc due to bronstrum repair r ankle it's medically sound no issues . Va has me at 40 % disability, The Marine recruiter told me there's people serving with 60% and 80
Had myappendix removed 3 yrs ago (Appendix Is common)
My understanding that they're trying to staff the port security units and those take precedence and they're looking at those for waivers more reguarly and rapidly because it's a a billet that they need filled, it's difficult to find candidates because of the high deployment tempo. I'm a solid team player
ME it is my understanding at PSU a critical billet.
I could probly get letters of recommendation from high level state officials If it help?
Hit me w/ the fact
