I don't have all the specifics, but I know there is a small possibility of early retirement for certain career fields. Those particular career fields, according to my husband, haven't been announced yet for this year but should be shortly. He doesn't believe Meterology, what he does, will be on that short list, but we're both crossing our fingers. He has just under three years left before he can retire at 20, but it feels like an eternity.
If you or your spouse plan on retiring from the military, would you take the early retirement if it were an option? It does mean less pay, however for us, it brings about an infinity of options.
I'm just curious to see where everybody else stands on this subject.
