This might sound crazy but his clothes aren't ironed and his shoes are scuffed.

Would you be able to tell me the age of the youngest serving officer in charge of nucleur weapons.

I just want to know the truth.

Many thanks
As others have stated he could have made Petty Officer by that age, especially in a nuclear rating.

As to his appearance, again as others have said, not all are spit and polish. If he was a bubblehead he's going to be a bit, different is a good word, anyway.

Did he say he was an officer or did he say he was a petty officer?

This is an update after the brilliant advice I was able to ask him about his comission and ranking. He has now changed his story and claims to have served in the British Navy instead. When I asked him about how he was able to leave he cited medical discharge due to severe IBS. I am now of the opioion that he is a pathological liar, this is tough as student nurse's we are both under the Nursing and Midwifery Code. Should I report his fantasys? He now also claiming to have gotten four people fired from his last placement I checked again all lies. Thanks again for all advice. ps He is only 21.

I was in the Army, but I'm guessing it works the same. Like some of the others mentioned, the official contract length is 8 years, but the important number, the number the recruiter is telling you, is how many of them will be active duty. In-active Reserves is basically out of the military. You can move where you want and do what you want. I'm not saying it hasn't every happened, but I don't know of anybody on inactive reserve status who has been called up before.

And of course you will get college money. When I was in last they paid fully for your "tuition" and then gave you a G.I. Bill in addition.
