Nice to be able to say you know a few famous people !

The tripling mentioned sounds entirely feasible since the
S&P has more than tripled over a similar time period.

Nice job Nords. Anyone else see the typo in this line from the article.
"But the market hit the bottom in March 2019."

And just think, we all got the benefit of his wisdom eons before it was shared with the world.

OTOH, it’s stunning that Forbes would publish a typo like this:
“the market hit the bottom in March 2019”

....should’ve been 2009.

Does anyone else have the sneaking feeling that a lot of readers could come away with "You can only do this if you have a military pension"?

+1. That and I also thought about health insurance! I could care less about the pension but the thing that is holding me back is the outrageous healthcare costs. I know AHA is there but I still don't trust that it will be around long term.
