Jobs with any physical efforts involved make it very unlikely they can be held past mid or early 60s.. We wear out, knees, hands, eyesight, feet, hips. all of it... Sedentary jobs, maybe, but sedentary work likely has it's own hazards, stress, memory loss, health problems, adds up, runs up insurance costs, as do the physical jobs... Keeping old timers like myself on the job is a stopper, preventing the new kids from moving up. We take away a lot of skills, those new kids eventually catch on, like we did, but there needs to be a turnover.

Private contracting for military services, is just crazy, it takes it off the books, stops the reporting of casualties, breaks the whole system down..

We're stuck with a do nothing Congress, barely working a 110 day YEAR, yet they want the general population to work into their 70s, 80s? Not going to happen, no thinking company will hire seniors with all their foibles...

Thanks to Steve for doing a great job sorting out a lot of the issues...
