Nobody ever promised me that I would become rich from a military career, or retiring from the military. My retirement pay posts in my account every month, and I'm thankful for that. It's better than nothing!

I agree DW, My Wife and my Son are both retired Navy. We are by no means Rich, but I am so thankful for what we have.

It is not much, but it is always good to get more. I am glad for my retired pay, and glad to have served. Go Air Force.

I didn't think I would make it to twenty years. I got out after 12 years. Six years later I was called back in to go to Iraq. Surprised but one of the best things to happen to me. I was able to stay on active duty for the next 8 years.

My retirement pay allowed me to get my TT and enjoy RVing!

I'm grateful for any pay!

John

After I left the Army after nine year I was looking forward to never being in the military again. A few years later I joined the National Guard and what I was thinking about was the money I would make for retirement after 60 years old, I never dreamed that the insurance would be worth so much more than a few dollars. Both for me and DW
