I joined 5/19th SF at 29, then went back in active to get a better chance at a slot. Had to repeat INF OSUT at 30 with fuckin' teenagers - it sucked being around that much stupid but WTF, you do what ya gotta. Without wanting it, you're wasting a slot, and probably wouldn't cut it. No disrespect, I totally understand your reluctance - it was a total lifestyle change and only cost me my knees, and ultimately wife #2. I wish I could rewind to that day when I signed back up... there are mistakes I made I'd correct, but doing it wasn't one of them.
