Yes, full benefits at 20 years.  My retirement pay is 50% of my highest pay for three years, averaged together, and every year past 20 is another 2.5%.  I will pin Major at about 19, which means if i want to maximize my pay, i would retire at 22 years for 55% of Major Pay for three years.  Whereas, if i retire at 20 years, it would be 50% of my pay for two years as a Captain and one year as a Major.  It is a big pay bump from Captain to Major, and the difference in pay would be a car payment.  I am planning on staying to 22 unless they upset me, then who knows what.

That's great Keith!   I wish I would've known all this when I was in high school.     Congrats to you and just like you, I would wait and retire at 22 as well.

My Rate was MM2/SS (Machinist Mate Second Class Submarine Warfare Qualified). I completed Naval Nuclear Power School (1988-1990) and was a Nuclear Trained Mechanical Operator.

Starting Fresh! If you are active service, veteran, or retired from the military, post what, when, and where you are or have been HERE. It doesn't matter which branch, or for our international dads which country, just let us know. We support our troops current and past.

There probably will be some inter-service razzing here and in this forum, but if your a vet, retired or active you have the thick skin to survive and return fire, except maybe the Air Force guys. For them the scented tissue is on the left next to the Midol. We are all brothers, regardless of which branch.

Wow! So much awesomeness John! Condolences..err..Congrats to your boy for getting a steady girl! LOL. Naval Sea Cadets sounds cool, is it similar to JROTC? Also, Good luck on your surgery!

Naval Sea Cadets is somewhat like JROTC, but MUCH better! We drill one weekend a month and then have advanced training two weeks a year at least. JROTC discipline has become a joke and their training is lacking in comparison. For instance last summer Jeremy spent two week at NAS Lemoore working with the Navy on FA-18's, where he worked with the various maintenance shops. He helped install a landing gear switch, started and brought an FA-18 to test throttle, and learned about the plane hands on. We have had cadets helm super carriers and do at sea replenishment. Jeremy got CERT certified at a training the year before last. JROTC is a decent program, but the schools have dumbed it down, and made it a more sensitive program.

William is in Cub Scouts, and as such i was his Tiger Den leader and will assume the Wolf Den leader next school year.

As Randy can attest as well, being a Den leader is extremely rewarding and a whole lotta fun!

Also now the Cubmaster of my sons cub scout pack.  He has one more year after this one then n to boy scouts

Been there, done that, got the t-shirt! Some of the best times I have had with my boy were in scouts. Boy Scouts is different and you're not as involved directly with the boys or your son, but you do get to watch the circus as they learn and grow. The goal as an adult leader is to keep them from killing themselves as they fumble around in the woods. Watch as they burn themselves, but stopping them before reaching third degree burns.  ~o)

The post quote feature is not working for me for some reason, so I had to do it cut and paste.

Ramblin, reporting as ordered!

Jeremy is 17 now...

I'm having a real problem processing that. We've all been together (aside from the last few quiet years) a long time now.

Good luck with the surgery.  I wish you a speedy recovery.
