In the five years that I spent in the Army I came across a few soldiers that fit this description.
Some were officers and some were elisted. You are eligible to enter West Point at age 22, which means you will be commissioned at age 26. As a previous poster mentioned you can enlist upto age 35...

Why not embrace the idea of playing FL every year? After all, we have played them almost every year since 1953, which is more than we have played any other SEC program during this period except for Ole Piss and Moo U.

Kind of ironic that he chose to include teams from the east such as GA, TN, and KY in the history portion of the article and not FL. He even goes so far as give props to the fact that we played KY annually from 1952-2002.
