To some readers, this might sound like a dumb article. But I hope you can look at it objectively and share any insights you might have with me.
Most people join the military knowing that after they do 20 good years, they can retire with a 50% pension. And if they do more than 20 years, they can earn an even higher percentage. This was one of the things that initially attracted me to the military when I first joined the Army in 1995.
However, I have a question for you. Here it is. “Is there a document or regulation anywhere in any government publication or document that explains the rules or laws concerning a military pension and guarantees that your pension is protected?” Or, is it more of an “unwritten rule” that the government simply follows?
I ask this because in my 15 year military career I never once saw anything that guarantees or explains the rules or laws about a military pension. Additionally, no one ever sat down with me and showed me where it explains the rule/law concerning military pensions.
Now I’m simply trying to find out so I can educate my website visitors. If you have any information about this subject, please share your thoughts by leaving a comment below. Thank you.
