requesting Advice from our retired military here
Howdy ya'll. I'm preparing to turn over the watch here soon.....Jan. 2012 I'm putting to pasture after twenty years of standing the watch in our Navy's submarine service. It's been a heck'uva ride but I'm looking forward to moving forward in a new capicity.
My question is pretty broad, what 'lessons learned' have each of you who have crossed the brow before me aquired during and after retiring? Dealing with your PSD (personnal support detatchment), the VA, Job hunting, GI bill, etc. I'm inquiring really on any and all lessons and experiences you would like to share. I've only just begun the route to retirement and I've already discovered that the paperwork involved in retiring is at the very least, quadruple what I had to deal with whenI signed up.:blink:
Although this is Navy specific, any service experience and lesson learned will be greatly appreciated. Knowledge IS power.
Man, it's been 20 years already?
