The US Naval Institute’s News Service reports,
The Navy will now allow men and women up to age 41 to enlist in the service, a new change in policy for which it has the Army to thank.
Under the change, made by Navy Recruiting Command this month, the new maximum age for Navy recruits is 41, as long as the person enlisting can report to training before their 42nd birthday, according to the new policy.
Don’t think it would hurt the Coast Guard to follow this policy change.
Update: The Coast Guard has raised the age limit. See the Comments.
