Phil, I tried to reply privately to this, but it looks like your ISP is 
black-holing from fastmail.fm.


Unless you are over 47 (web site says 46), you might think about
it again.  I received email from an AMEDD recruiter just yesterday
confirming this.  I dunno about the 4F; I can't imagine PT reqs
are all that stringent if they are accepting 47 yo's. :-)

The recruiter said:
Active Duty--you must have your BSN and an RN lic.:
"* Age 21 to 47 years old at time of accession onto active duty."

ANG/Reserve--prefer BSN, but will accept ADN, ditto on the lic
and age.

Here's a web site link:

I can send you the recruiter's email address if you want.  I'm
thinking CNA or surgical tech short term, since I've heard they
are "flying out the door" after graduation, job-wise.  Then
apply to accBSN, since I have more leeway than I thought on age.
It was listed as 42 as recently as a couple of months ago on the
goarmy web site, which would be cutting it close for me.
