Greetings from Olympia, WA!

Greetings from Olympia! I retired from the Army in 1996 and have been supplementing my income as a Security Guard for Madigan Army Hospital here on Fort Lewis. I am thankful for this Federal job...but it can be stressful...and to be honest, I would love to really retire at 62...albeit, I am fearful in this topsy-turvy economy. My wife will reire in a year at 65. I hope to glean as much wisdom from all of you on this site...and promise to share what I know/learn. Metta!

welcome to the forum. Whats your financial situation look like? Have you run your numbers through Firecalc ? FIRECalc: A different kind of retirement calculator

Firecalc will help you make the tough decision of clinging to OMY syndrome (One More Year) or pulling the plug.

Welcome, Cedrus.
Very conservative with investments. Not ER'd yet, 48 years old. Please do not take anything I write or imply as legal, financial or medical advice directed to you. Contact your own financial advisor, healthcare provider, or attorney for financial, medical and legal advice.
