I may be a bit over the hill for this job, but I'll be willing to bet that there are some SASSIES out there who would make darn good air marshals. (Of course, I don't agree that I'm over the hill, but the truth of it is that we "seasoned" citizens are not in demand for jobs like this--LOL!)

Now if a bunch of guys with names starting with "A"{have you noted the names of the terrorist start with A or M} show up with turbans and are from Saudi,,,is it illegal not to hire them? Would that be discriminatory?

Candidates must be under 37 years of age.

Isn't this age discrimination? I wonder how they arrived at that particular age.

I'm too old, and my wife wouldn't let me take the cut in pay :^).

But as soon as they have a CCW-AIR certification for us non-LEO peons, I'll be first in line to get one.

I think you gotta be able to kick some major booty if necessary. I have to agree with 'em. I sorta lost that a few years ago.

Give this a bump to anyone you know who might be interested.

If they have a family life, it could be a problem, since the job will entail unpredictable deployments all over the world on short notice for long periods of time.

They need to be under 37 years old, and eligible for a Top Secret security clearance. They can be older with former FLEO experience.

The job pays $35-80,000 depending on many factors.

Our government continues to be stupid. 37 years of age???

I am 64, resaonably healty, could kill most 37 year olds with my bare hands, retired , expert marksman, doctors degree, know where all the vital body spots are, have the guts to use the knowledge, will work for 1/4 of what they'll have to pay, and enjoy the vacation. To look at me you'd never suspect, I look helpless.

How many more out there like me?

Guys like me are perfect for this duty.

In publicly establishing the age limitation, didn't the FAA just make the job of a terrorist that much easier? They just eliminated the vast majority of male air travelers who would have been otherwise suspected of being a 'marshal' just because they were on the plane.

It would have been better if age was a classified matter.

Well, well, well. Too bad the max age is 37. I didn't think that our remarks about being "old farts" on that other thread would be taken so seriously! $;-)

Heck, you would be better than perfect, because the terrorists would turn their backs on "old grand dad".

Then "old grand dad" puts terrorist #1 in a chokehold from behind, and uses his body as a shield while capping #2, #3 and #4 with head shots!

What do you think of a 37 year-old, possibly unemployed airline pilot, Marine Corps trained?

I know, wasn't that stupid? The marshals will be the young guy in a jacket and tie with a "fed" haircut.
