I'm an infantryman. It's what I do. After the 150s, God willing, I'll still be shouldering a musket. There was a picture taken of me at McDowell and I continue to be amazed at how good I look in it. I just turned 50, and I don't look like my Father did at this age. Should I be unable to shoulder arms credibly, I will go back to my chaplain's impression, as there was no age limit for chaplains and a number were significantly older than other officers.
