    from what I could find on about.com:



    Question: What is the maximum age to enlist in the Military?

    Answer: The maximum age of non-prior service enlistment, under federal law used to be age 35. In 2006 the Army convinced Congress to change this to age 44.

    Regardless of federal law, the military services are allowed to impose more strict standards -- and they have. The maximum age for non-prior service enlistments for each of the services are:

    Active duty Army - 42
    Army Reserves - 42
    Army Natinal Guard - 42
    Active duty Air Force - 27
    Air Force Reserve - 34
    Air National guard - 34
    Active duty Navy - 34
    Navy Reserves - 39
    Active duty Marines - 28
    Marine Corps Reserves - 29
    Active duty Coast Guard - 27
    Coast Guard Reserves - 27
    Age waivers are possible for those with prior military service.

    By federal law (10 U.S.C., 505), the minimum age for enlistment in the United States Military is 17 (with parental consent) and the maximum age is 35 (Note: Congress changed this to age 42 in 2006).
    Active Army - 42
    Army Reserves (Including National Guard) - 42
    Active Air Force - 27
    Air Force Reserve (inlcuding National Guard) - 34
    Active Navy - 34
    Naval Reserves - 39
    Active Marines - 28
    Marine Corps Reserve - 29
    Active Duty Coast Guard - Age 27. Note: up to age 32 for those selected to attend A-school directly upon enlistment (this is mostly for prior service).
    Coast Guard Reserves - Age 39.
