I'm in that age group and I would go. We may be older and have a lot more pounds then when we were younger but that only makes us meaner and more hard header. We learned to fight like the VC and NVA and at that time we were called the meanest and best solders in the world.
If got a few "old" guys that I supervise. Though I may outrank them, I'll always listen to what they have to say. These older guys are often instrumental in helping me develop my tactical strategies. We've accomplished several successful missions due to the knowledge and contributions of these "old folks".
The guys I tend to not listen to are those damn junior officers. :wink:
