Funniest thing I 've ever gotten in the mail

ok - a long time ago - I enlisted in the Navy during Viet Nam. I did my tour of duty and got out.

A few years after that, I re-enlisted, but this time in the Army reserve and I stayed in for about 6 years.

For those who don't know me very well - I'm 53 years old, pretty overweight and out of shape - so imagine my surprise yesterday when I got an offer from the Navy Reserve - asking me to reclaim what I loved so much about military service and consider rejoining.

Now I have to assume they got my name from my military records - don't they know that I'm 53?

How desperate must they be?

Anyway, I'm tempted to take the offer and go into a recruiting office just to see what they say when they see me with my knitting.
