its ok. it isn't the best but it isn't the worst
The money is good, but you have to stay around for a good amount of time to get it.
Should be more pay, considering the physical toll your body will take.
pension comes fast, 20 years gets you 50% and 30 gets you 75% but its not enough to support a family still have to work while you're getting your checks.
unmatched by anything in civilian world
Pension plan is excellent and available early.
20 year plan, pay coming from a % of your last 3 years of active duty
40% at 20 years.
Serve 20 years for pension, receive as soon as you complete active duty time.
Some newer personnel can elect to have hybrid options for retirement and pensions.
