Perseverance is furthering me to cross the great water. I was beginning to think I wasn't wanted with all the additional required medical clearance stuff I've done, including a psychiatric evaluation. Were they trying to discourage me on purpose? I understand they don't want volunteers to be a liability and I guess as an 'older' volunteer, we are scrutinized more closely. The good news is I'm as healthy as I thought. BTW 7% of PC volunteers are 50+. I guess I am special in that regard.
