***Just for references sake if Marie could please site specifically where
this requirement is stated. As it has been said age is not the great measure
of a persons readiness to join a Ship or Post. By setting a requirement
National is taking the guess work out of telling someone that they are or
are not ready to join. It also keeps anyone from being made the "bad guy"
when they have to tell someone that they aren't ready. If Marie is correct
then we need to decide either to
accept it as it is or to voice our objections to National.
Well John and others....you know what they say....when all else fails, read
the directions! If you pick up an Explorer application and open it the
inside front and check out the last line of the first paragraph, you'll find
that it says:
"I am at least 14 years of age and have completed the eighth grade or am 15
years of age and not yet 21."
That is definitely not gray.
