He is still in Tech School down in Lackland. Security Forces. He is headed to Ramstein in a couple of months which is cool because Germany is home for us.

I am not (nor have been) in the military, but two of my cousins are. I am very proud of these guys so when I saw the thread, I wanted to show them off....

William - Captain - USMC
Osprey pilot. He returned from Afghanistan the week after Christmas.
This picture is of him and Drew Brees in his Osprey. Drew made rounds to the troops after last year's Super Bowl. My cousin got to fly him around.




Brian - not sure of rank - USAF
Just returned this last year from a couple years in India trainging their air force on a new jet. His normal aircraft is a C-17

^^Just to help you out, your cousin in the second pic is a captain.

That's cool about getting to fly Drew Brees around.

^^ Thanks! I was thinking so, but couldn't remember. I haven't been able to see him for a couple years.

so...both pilot cousins are Captains.

Good luck and thank you for your service. I may be a little bias but I think serving your country is the most honorable job in the world.

Are you signing up for the GI Bill? If so remember this trick. It worked out good for me. From your very first paycheck they will deduct the $100 for your share of the GI Bill. They will do this for the first year. It is money you will never see. At month 11 setup a allotment to buy a savings bond for 100 dollars automatically every month starting on month 13. Remember this is money you never seen you you never knew you had it and will not miss it. If you don't want savings bonds then pick some other SAFE investment. If you end up doing 20 years...well, you do the math. The key part is it is money you never knew you had.

Never new that, thanks! i'll definitely look into that. There are still plenty of things I don't know, thats for sure.

Not to discurage anyone from giving advice, but I think the advice above was incomplete. First, you are elligible for the Post 9-11 GI Bill as long as you do 36 months of service. There is no requirement to pay $100 a month for it. Also, bonds have terible return rates. IMHO, you would be better off putting a pecentage of your pay into the Thrift Savings Plan. There you can manage the amount of risk you take. The G Fund is a "No-Loss" example. Other Funds in TSP assume some risk as the market fluxuates. As a single Soldier, you could contribute up to $17,000 per year. All contributions are tax defered, except funds contributed while deployed. Deployed contributions are tax exempt, you will never be taxed on them. If you asked me, I would recomend contributing 10-20% to start out. More if you can.

Withdrawing funds from TSP prior to ETS or Retirement is not easy. It can be done but is considered a loan that must be re-paid to your TSP account. Otherwise, you can withdraw all or part of your account after you are out of service. Your withdrawal will be taxed 25%, with the exception of any tax exempt funds you contributed.

Here is an example for you: I started TSPin 2003. I have approximately $58,000 in my account. I have contributed approx $17,000 tax exempt funds. I'm currently contributing 34% of my pre-taxed base pay each month or approx $1,500. Last quarter I earned approx. $4,000 in returns, this is only slightly lower that what I contribute every month. Over the last 8 years, I have averaged more than 10% return each year. That is a very good return, but will require you to actively manage your funds. Based on contributions alone over the next 5 years I will have over $100,000 in my account.

In the end, any smart advice will tell you to invest in a broad spectrum to reduce risk. The TSP is just one way for you to do that. It is not the only way. Seek out advice from a professional investment consultant for more information on how to best plan for your financial future. I recomend going to a licenced and bonded agentcy that is nationaly known and respected.

Lastly, welcome to the Armed Services. Being in the military is easy, it only requires 4 things. Being at the right place, at the right time, in the right uniform and doing the right thing. Do these four simple things and you will have a great tour.

Top,
Good advice. So was mine. TSP comes with a risk. What I was trying to point out is that you can take the 100 a month that you are never going to see anyway and let it work for you. Even if you just set a allotment up to dump it into a savings account.
Are they even offering anything less than 36 month contracts now days? You are correct in that you must do the 36 months to qualify for the GI Bill. With the draw down coming they may very well go back to the 24 month contracts, who knows.
Bottom line is I think both of us want what is best for the new troop and wish him all the best. Your plan is well laid out and is something he could do when he moves from E-4 to E-5. At that point he will not be hurting for money as bad because we all know people do not joint the forces to get rich. My plan is something he can do from the start and never feel the pinch of extra money.

I have been serving in the US Navy for 9 years and serve on submarines. I have spent 5 years of my life under water and have done 7 deployments. I am now stationed at Naval Ordnance Test Unit at NASA and love my job! Here are a couple of pics of life so far. I will post a couple more pics and a video of my recent missile launch from a submarine.

In Florida. (yes, really... and in August... it makes sense if you're Army, just ask anyone who's been a Soldier)

I know I posted it in another forum, but it's the only picture I got handy in uniform...
I know the McKinley Climatic lab well! I was stationed at Eglin for nine years!
