Too bad. He looks to be excellent officer material.

Hey thanks, reading through all the comments and banter has been great. Yes, I joined at 34 and could not get an age waiver for OCS, so I enlisted. My next step to become a Warrant Officer candidate. After seeing what the officers do, I think I would prefer it anyways. Our CW2 does the most "pure" intel work out of all of us.
And yes, LT Santana was prior enlisted; made it to E7 then decided to go officer. Yeah, the two of us are really the most atypical soldiers in the S2.
But hey, when terrorists attack your homeland, you do what needs to be done. Officer or enlisted, nothing was going to hold me back from answering "the call."
