The older half, or "first wave", of America's next great generation is optimistic, idealistic, patriotic, and adult-supervised. Revere the wisdom of elders. Team players. Re-defining life in one's 20s – "extended adolescence". Not loyal to employers – yet. Unrealistic expectations on the job. Delaying marriage and parenting. They will become an excellent career generation. They'll be all about ACTION.
