Uncle Sam Wants Me !

UPDATE: Welcome WDEL listeners. Here is the debunking of the recent Iraq WMD story Al mentioned. Think Progress

------------------------------

Wow! The war in Iraq must be going great. So great, in fact, that the Army is now looking for 42 year olds to sign up.

WASHINGTON (Reuters)

The U.S. Army, aiming to make its recruiting goals amid the Iraq war, raised its maximum enlistment age by another two years on Wednesday, while the Army Reserve predicted it will miss its recruiting target for a second straight year.

People can now volunteer to serve in the active-duty Army or the part-time Army Reserve and National Guard up to their 42nd birthday after the move aimed at increasing the number of people eligible to sign up, officials said.

It marked the second time this year the Army has boosted the maximum age for new volunteers, raising the ceiling from age 35 to 40 in January before now adding two more years.

Not so funny calling out the Yellow Elephants now, huh?

:-)
 
I'd feel honor bound to sign up if I was one of those liberal hawks who thought invading iraq with no occuption plan was a good idea.
 
looks like the just raised the age...now Hube can join and support the war.
 
Hube claims to be against the war - but for Bush. Lucky that.

BTW I like your posts - but can only read the left half of the words. I tried Windows and Mac and the format does not work for me in either.
 
That's right, I am against the war. Only you two cretinous absolutists cannot grasp how that is possible.
 
Has Santorum's reelection campaign imploded yet?
