Windows 7: Drafting over 60

Drafting over 60

Drafting Guys over 60----this is funny & seemingly written by a Former Soldier-

New Direction for any war: Send Service Vets over 60!

I am over 60 and the Armed Forces thinks I'm too old to track down terrorists. You can't be older than 42 to join the military. They've got the whole thing ass-backwards. Instead of sending 18-year olds off to fight, they ought to take us old guys. You shouldn't be able to join a military unit until you're at least 35.

For starters: Researchers say 18-year-olds think about sex every 10 seconds. Old guys only think about sex a couple of times a day, leaving us more than 28,000 additional seconds per day to concentrate on the enemy.

Young guys haven't lived long enough to be cranky, and a cranky soldier is a dangerous soldier. 'My back hurts! I can't sleep, I'm tired and hungry' We are impatient and maybe letting us kill some asshole that desperately deserves it will make us feel better and shut us up for a while.

An 18-year-old doesn't even like to get up before 10 a..m. Old guys always get up early to pee so what the hell. Besides, like I said, 'I'm tired and can't sleep and since I'm already up, I may as well be up killing some fanatical son-of-a-bitch.


If captured we couldn't spill the beans because we'd forget where we put them. In fact, name, rank, and serial number would be a real brainteaser.

Boot camp would be easier for old guys.. We're used to getting screamed and yelled at and we're used to soft food. We've also developed an appreciation for guns. We've been using them for years as an excuse to get out of the house, away from the screaming and yelling.


They could lighten up on the obstacle course however. I've been in combat and didn't see a single 20-foot wall with rope hanging over the side, nor did I ever do any pushups after completing basic training.

Actually, the running part is kind of a waste of energy, too. I've never seen anyone outrun a bullet.

An 18-year-old has the whole world ahead of him. He's still learning to shave, to start up a conversation with a pretty girl. He still hasn't figured out that a baseball cap has a brim to shade his eyes, not the back of his head...

These are all great reasons to keep our kids at home to learn a little more about life before sending them off into harm's way..

Let us old guys track down those dirty rotten coward terrorists. The last thing an enemy would want to see is a couple of million pissed off old farts with attitudes and automatic weapons who know that their best years are already behind them..

***How about recruiting Women over 50 ...in menopause!!! You think Men have attitudes !!!Ohhhhhhhhhhhh my God!!!
If nothing else, put them on border patrol.... They will have it secured the first night!

Ok, that was GREAT.

I read it just as those meds I took kicked in, so it made it that much funnier. It is a great point, though I think a lot of old guys might object. They might also have to make liberal amounts of alcohol available for them.

Your name sounds familiar to me>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

I am an old guy so I do not object. Shooting these terrorists is not much unlike shooting possums off the porch back in Texas.
They are pesky and ugly! Fun to pass the time shooting at! And most of all they jump when hit!

There's a fellow on this forum who ticks in all those boxes, I won't tell you his name in case he is offended,
but he has four letters in his name and three of them are, TW and S, bring him with you for the ride.

Sounds like a perfect plan to me. And, btw, I do qualify.

Being that I fit into that age bracket, I can say that I wouldn't care to be drafted, because while I could pull a trigger, I wouldn't care for taking orders, and they would need to revamp boot camp, because they would never get me to crawl through the sand in the barbed wire training pits. I can think of a lot of other things that they would have difficulty making me do, but that should suffice to make my point.
