Pretty soon I will be older than the model for this picture. But despite that, I just wrote a letter to ask to extend my enlistment for two more years in the 28th Combat Aviation Brigade.
The reason for the change, as far as I can tell, began with seeing "Fury." I may not be able to return to tanks, but after a weekend of talking to soldiers I have served with for years now, I knew I would hate myself if I didn't at least try to stay in. So I wrote a letter saying why it was good for the Army to keep me in for another year or two.
I don't know if it will work. Waivers over age 62 have to be approved by Big Army at the Pentagon, not just at the state level.
I will let you know.
