"OCS age requirement 19-29. Age waivers on a case by case basis up to age 34. Sounds like the Cpl could well have missed the cutoff."

He's only been in for 27 months or less. Plus today, there are lots of enlisted people with degrees. Some prefer the enlisted life, the chance to be more "mission-oriented" rather than career-oriented. That's why SF guys stay enlisted, otherwise they end up going to all kinds of other not-so-exciting assignments.

I agree & thought the same thing, esp. about the Cpl. Given his old stodgy job as an English teacher & his being motivated by September 11, I think he sounds like a mission-oriented type of guy.
