20 years ago today, I entered basic training for the Air Force. I can't believe it's gone by so fast... And the next few months are really going to fly - as I work on transitioning to the civilian work force. :)

Wow. First of all, thank you for your service. I hope that you find the transition easy and lucrative.

Secondly, I always thought you were 20-ish.

Thanks! I also dropped my retirement paperwork! I requested a 1 April retirement date... so that means with all my leave time, I'll stop working in early January. WOOHOO!!!! I'll be doing some SERIOUS skiing then!!!!!

Awesome! If I would have just stayed in the first time I'd only be two years from a retirement, now I feel like I'm only about the halfway point, damn women....

congrats to you, thanks sister of blue!
civilian life can be wierd, but you spent your time in the air force so it shouldn't be too hard....

Awesome! That's an achievement. I have not been in a job longer than five years out here in the private sector. Hope the pension, when it comes, treats you ok.

Thank you for the service!

I hope your plans are with the DOD for all sakes. It does add in to your service years and makes the benefits and time served even better for you. You deserve it.

Thanks. Had I stayed in, I'd be 18 months from retirement right now. But I'd also probably look 50. No regrets.

Yeah, Just about everyone I know that retires ends up looking about 10 years younger (and alot less stressed lol).
