    For most people, it's 62 without a waiver (which is usually only granted for people like healthcare and chaplains that are allowed to enter above the normal cutoff ages).  Some senior officers can stay longer.

    I just commissioned someone as a healthcare provider and she had to sign a form stating that she understood that she might not be able to get 20 years in before being forced out due to age.

    You CAN'T join at 42 unless you previously served, am I correct?

    There is no cut off age.   Many people serve in the US military their entire careers.    Norman Marous served for almost 41 years.
