How Long Does It Take for Atherosclerosis To Develop?

Can someone in their 20's develop atherosclerosis especially if they have high cholesterol but are taking a statin and exercising? How long does it usually take? I also am overweight but have been watching what I eat alongside exercise. I also have no heart issues.

    I read reports that young troops, killed in Vietnam had autopsies done that found atherosclerosis in the coronary arteries at the 10-20% blockage noted. 

    I think this is a common occurrence in society today, and think screening for high cholesterol and consideration for treatment would be wise, even for younger patients.
