Hundreds of people in their late 30s have joined the Air Force in recent years after the service changed the age restriction for new recruits over a decade ago. The age limit for persons without prior military service to enroll on active duty was raised from 27 to 39 in 2014. The Air Force Reserve’s age restriction was also raised from 34 to 39. For a number of reasons, middle-aged Americans are commonly lured to the Air Force. Some are parents who are searching for a new adventure after establishing a family or those who have had their aspirations of entering the military put on hold. Others, with or without a college diploma, find themselves with limited possibilities later in life, and some rethink their plans following a big life change.
