All discussion regarding financial strategies or tactics presented here are my opinions on the topic. Your financial decisions should be based on individualized research and/or the advice from a sworn fiduciary familiar with your personal goals and interests.
I am a retired Air Force officer, having served 26 years. My career included 13 years enlisted time in Financial Management, 7 years as a Budget Officer, and 6 years in Logistics, concluding my career as a Squadron Commander. Following my retirement, I spent 2.5 years in the civilian workforce before reevaluating how I can best serve my family and my community. As it turns out, earning the highest income possible wasn't the best solution. I hope to share what I've learned.
