WOW this post couldnt have come at a better time for me. I've been in the Army for 20 years. My retirement paperwork was just approved for this fall. So i have had a lot of thoughts on what to do next. I'm working on a degree, just to have something to help furture plans what ever those plans should end up. In high school I was dead set on being a rock star, do ya think I should relook that one?
Yes!! Rock star. Longevity (Stones, etc)
When I worked in state government, I started to realize just how many there were ex-military. Makes sense, work 10 years to be vested, in Texas, have free insurance for life and another pension to be tacked onto your military one. Plus, we had more holidays, comp time and sick time that it was a good setup for musicians or anyone. Good luck!
