What makes you think that is unusual? I got my first TS at age 21 because I was a new DOD operations analyst working on a contingency planning computer model that massaged Top Secret data - e.g. potential force deployment mixes and support requirements. Half the people I worked with were under 30 and held TS clearances. Across the street EVERYONE in the submarine silencing group right down to the secretaries needed and had that level of clearance. It is not nearly as rare or exalted as many people think because quite simply the US Government likes to slap Top Secret on way to much stuff.
