Hi, my name is Private Alicia Martel and I'm from Concord, New Hampshire. I have a question from Tra who is from Viroqua, Wisconsin. She wanted a female over the age of 30 to ask this question; "When it came time to go through MEPS and ship what was the hardest part for your age?"

If you are physically fit you should be fine. You actually are at an advantage because mentally and emotionally you should be more prepared than the other privates that you're going with. So I should say as long as you can pass the PT test you should be fine and actually be at an advantage.
