Here’s more about the book:
John Perry did two things on his 75th birthday. First he visited his wife’s grave. Then he joined the army.
No joining the army or going into interstellar space until you’re at LEAST 75 years old.
Out there, planets to live on are scarce—and alien races willing to fight us for them are common. So: we fight.
Responsible for protecting humanity, the Colonial Defense Force doesn’t want young people; they want people who carry the knowledge and skills of decades of living. You’ll be taken off Earth, never to return. You’ll serve two years in combat. And if you survive, you’ll be given a homestead of your own on a hard-won planet light-years from home.
