I just got 4 new folks in my section alone this month. I will be reenlisting for 6 more years this week, giving me 32 years. Generally, the only folks we lose are to retirements or medical. Air National Guard.

You don’t really lose the retirees because they’d come back in a minute if they were asked (I would). In the mean time, they are the Sports Coaches, Scoutmasters, Cub Pack Leaders, etc. watching out for the military and community youth.

You go, ODC-GIRL! I would have stayed in for my 20 at least but back in ‘92, they didn’t want old fat pukes like me any more. Remember the “peace dividend”? I helped pay for it. Had 14 good years, 7 of those were active duty years. I’ve got a few thousand points for sale to the highest bidder. I can’t use them myself. “:^(
If I could have stayed for 20, I would have started drawing my retirement in July.
