An 18-year-old hasn't had a legal beer yet and you shouldn't go to war
until you're at least old enough to legally drink. An average old guy,
on the other hand, has consumed 126,000 gallons of beer by the time
he's 35 and a jaunt through the desert heat with a backpack and M-60
would do wonders for the old beer belly.

An 18-year-old doesn't like to get up before 10 a.m. Old guys get up
early every morning to pee.

If old guys are captured we couldn't spill the beans because we'd
probably forget where we put them. In fact, name, rank, and serial
number would be a real brainteaser.

Boot camp would actually be easier for old guys. We're used to getting
screamed and yelled at and we actually like soft food. We've also
developed a deep appreciation for guns and rifles. We like them almost better than naps.

They could lighten up on the obstacle course however. I've been in
combat and didn't see a single 20-foot wall with rope hanging over the
side, nor did I ever do any pushups after completing basic training.
I can hear the Drill Sergeant now, "Get down and give me...er...one."

And the running part is kind of a waste of energy. I've never seen
anyone outrun a bullet.

An 18-year-old has the whole world ahead of him.! He's still learning
to shave, to actually carry on a conversation, and to wear pants
without the top of his butt crack showing and his boxer shorts
sticking out. He's still hasn't figured out that a pierced tongue
catches food particles, and that a 400-watt speaker in the back seat
of a Honda Accord can rupture an eardrum. All great reasons to keep
our sons at home to learn a little more about life before sending them
off to possible death.

Let us old guys track down those dirty rotten cowards who attacked our
hearts on September 11. The last thing the enemy would want to see
right now is a couple of million old farts with attitudes.

us old guys

Wouldn't bother me one bit to put some ragheads in the old crosshairs.
I will never forget or forgive I still say kill them all let God sort them out.
