    The worst thing the military did was change its retirement plan from a defined benefit plan to a blended plan. The new plan is a combination 401(k) and the old defined benefit plan.

    401k with low expense ratios, decent selection. Selection from: S&P 500, international large cap, U.S. Small cap, bonds and treasuries. After 20 years of service, pension provides 40%+ of base pay each month starting the day you retire.
