    I would like to hear everyone's goals with the Military. Are you making it a career or do you have other plans?

    I'm curious because i'm not 100%.

    Right now i'd like to retire in the military and become a Dallas Police Officer(I am actually a big fan of the Dallas PD)...

    But i'm not experienced and I can't say for sure which direction this will take me.

    What are you doing, or what have you done and how do you like doing it?

    Get into AF Security Forces... I'm planning on enlisting for 4, but we'll see how I like it.

    Get out and get on with Phoenix PD.

    Work my way to becoming a Detective.

    Eventually work Homicide.

    I've talked with a few vet military detectives and they love their jobs. Seems like a really cool job.

    I am 35, have 14+ years in service, and still have no fucking clue what I want to do when I grow up. Right now I have met all of my career goals, so I am just kind of drifting a long right now.

    I owe the Army 6 years starting yesterday, which will push me out past my retirement date, so the pension is a lock. Well, as long as Obama doesn't go crazy and start fucking with military pensions like the Dems threaten to do whenever they are in power.

    Make E7 by 15 years, coast the last 5 to retirement. Already E6 in 9 years, so I'm doing really well by AF standards.

    June will be my 12 year mark, the first 9 of which were spent Enlisted...goal...simple, to make Major and do the last 3 years with the oak leaf and call it a day. After that, I haven't a clue...I keep hearing it shouldn't be hard for me to find a job...but we'll see.






    p.s. I'm with Brackac on the Dems issue though...

    You'll be grandfathered out any changes to retirement.

    wait what is this?

    This may sound really stupid, but if you joined before the amended GI Bill, do you not get the same benefits as some who joined after?

    Anytime they change the rules, the people currently in get a choice. When they changed the retirement from 50% of your highest rank to High Three, those guys that were in under the 50% got to choose between the old or the new. So if the new deal sucks, you can keep the old one.
