I fully support our military. My son in law is still a Marine and many others have served. But govt (local, state and federal) all over are seeing changes in benefits and retirements. I don't know all the nuances of what you're talking about but my guess is you will still pay much less than what I pay for my health ins. When I retired after 30 years with the PD I could keep my health ins for $1300 a month. I don't want to see our service members get screwed over but times are changing. I just wish the same changes applied to Congress.
Ok, any military retirees out there that have a Tricare standard supplement that they like? Since cockhead McCain decided to turn his back on the military and come up with the idea to kick all the military retirees off Tricare Prime I have to move down to Standard and get a supplement. I love how more retirement benefits are being taken away from the military. I can't recommened to any young person to go in the military anymore, you will eventually come out with nothing. I hope McCain gets prostate cancer and rots from the inside out. Too bad the NVA didn't keep his fucking ass/end of rant
Right now I can not agree that it is guaranteed for life. Mfromphilly1 thought his medical bennifits where "guaranteed for life" but it would seem that has changed. However I do agree that if you do 15 then go ahead and do the extra 5. Just make sure you have more than just military retirement. Put money away in a roth 401k or something like it. Something that is after taxes so you dont have to worry about tax increases after you retire.
