Heads up folks. This is a proposition you might want to keep an eye on. A congressional commission looking into Reserve and National Guard issues came back with a recommendation that affects Active Duty as well. They want 20 year retirees to have to wait until they are 60 before they are able to draw on their retirement. 30 year retirees would be eligible at 57. 10 year retirees would be eligible at 62.
This is a slap in the face to our Soldiers that they love asking so much from.

War is not the ugliest of things. Worse is the decayed state of moral feeling which thinks nothing is worth a war. A man who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which he cares for more than his personal safety, is a miserable creature who has no chance of being free. -J.S. Mill
