Biden's youngest son, Hunter, is joining the Navy.
The Navy says the attorney and former lobbyist was selected to be commissioned into the Navy Reserve as a public affairs officer. Because he is 42, he needed a special waiver to be accepted, but that is not uncommon. He is one of seven candidates recommended for a direct commission for public affairs.
Biden's oldest son, Beau, is Delaware's attorney general and Army National Guard member who served a yearlong deployment in Iraq.
Hunter Biden must serve three years of selected reserve status, during which he must be prepared to deploy anywhere in the world.
