With five years in service, what kind of retirement is it, was that just the writer’s mistake, or was Perry injured?

I couldn't say.
That was my question: the only kind of retirement available after 5 years is a medical retirement, which would mean he was assessed at least 30% permanently disabled. Unless there’s more, this is a journalist’s mistake. Which is not to take anything away from Pery’s service.

Most likely a goof by the writer. Normally 20 years service is required unless something like a medical retirement is involved.
In my case, after 6 years active duty, I resigned my commission and underwent voluntary separation, but still have some family members that say I "retired" from the AF.
