Sure to get buried today:
The Defense Department quietly asked Congress on Monday to raise the maximum age for military recruits to 42 for all branches of the service.
Under current law, the maximum age to enlist in the active components is 35, while people up to age 39 may enlist in the reserves.
That age has now creeped above my own superannuated status! And if they'll take you as a volunteer, will they eventually draft you?
