I'm entering the Air National Guard as a flight nurse. I have no military past and am 45. Are people like me treated fairly? I'm on my third career in nursing so I'm used to learning new things and comfortable being a newcomer. I would hope that people would judge me on my enthusiasm, expertise, and professionalism and leave it at that, but I don't know. I read a recent post that said the military isn't set up for older entrants. Can anyone give me some perspective on this? I've been wanting to join for many years but couldn't because of my family situation. Now divorced, I'm eager to serve both my county and soldiers in action. Any input would be appreciated, thanks.
