Today, we have officially completed ten years of Naval service. We are eligible for retirement after 20 years of service in the military. Friday’s reenlistment was a big decision for our family. Reenlisting for six years puts us within reach of retirement, in essence sealing our fate for the additional four years.
Many military members will tell you that the ten-year mark is a time for major decisions. You are halfway to retirement...so do you stay in and work towards retirement, or do you go your separate way.
