Old soldiers

As a mobilized Army Reserve officer with 34-plus years in uniform, including 21 years active, I’m doing everything I can to stay in uniform. I think in July 2008 I may be looking for Ralph Peters’ proposed Geezer Brigade [July]. Back-to-back 72-hour ARTEPs may be a bit rough, but at 55, I still feel like I can give five or 10 good years. I can still shoot, move and communicate. Where do I sign up?
