Fire Captain Gunny over and out , maybe?

Hello:

The day is near where I need to hang my fire helmet up after 36 years of service. It's not necessarily that I can't or don't want to continue the job either. At my age, 58, it appears that all the financial stars are lining up for me. The GATT rate (Nov 2012) is at it's losest rate in many years. My pay has been stagnant for the last 6 years. I have a family business that I will be sole owner of as soon as I retire. I'm healthy and haven't been severly injured to this point.

Anyway I do have some questions I hope you can look at. See ya on the forums
