Drafting Older Men

Drafting Guys over 60----this is funny & obviously 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 ***-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 ******* 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 I can't sleep and since I'm already up, I may
as well be up killing some fanatical SOB....

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 stretch.

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

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 ....with PMS !!! You think Men
have attitudes !!! Ohhhhhhhhhhhh my Lord!!! If nothing else, put
them on border patrol....we will have it secured the first night!

Share this with your senior friends. It's purposely in big type so
they can read it.
