    Well done, and thanks!
    A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.

    That's a good, long military career.
    So...........what is looking real good to you these days?
    Fishing? Golf? A quiet cabin in the hills?
    Whatever...you certainly have earned it.

    Finding a decent job. Even after 23 years, I can not afford to stop now. I started a family late in life, 4 kids from 1 to 13.

    Congrats on your retirement. One of the biggest adjustment I had to get used to when I retired from the military was the drop in income.

    If he's like 99% of military retirees it's back into the job market. Military retirement pay isn't nearly enough to retire on, especially if you still have a family your raising.

    From one Vet and retiree to another....Congrats on retirement. I'll echo Skysoldier, there is life after the military, it WILL take time and patience, you WILL miss your brothers in arms and believe it or not, the regimentation of how things function and operate. Civilian life is nice, but it is a total 180 from what you have been used to. From one who knows.
    Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.
