My Company Commander knob year at The Citadel did 26 years in the Army then got accepted to medical school and became a doctor at age 53, similarly one of my nursing school classmates was 60 when we graduated. Never too late to switch careers and achieve goals.
@conrack I worked with a corpsman years ago who got out and got his BS from the Citadel. Got his MD from USUHS then became one of the military’s top neurosurgeons. Retired as a captain. He wasn’t older when he went to Med school but your post reminded me of him.
