    Is there any military or retired military out here in BYC land? My husband did 22 1/2 yrs in the Army. Just wondering.

    Me. DH was in Civil Air Patrol as a kid, then ROTC in high school, then 5 years in the Air National Guard, then went active duty Air Force after we married and served 20 more years. We live on only his AF retirement monthly, which was the whole point of staying in, even though the gov't reneged on the "free medical for life" promise. Still, our insurance is currently not too bad, as long as we can find a doc who'll take it--and there aren't many around where I live.

    I spent 20 years in the U.S. Navy and retired as a Commander and my husband also spent 20 years in the Navy. We are happy to finally be settled down and not have to move again.

    My husband didn't retire from the military but he is a disabled vet and the money he gets from the VA is our main income. Thank goodness for the health care as well or we wouldn't have health coverage.
