    Ken Stabler died today at age 69. Colon cancer. That is why I am taking my SS as soon as possible. I have read all the info on taking it early , etc... I would rather be the guy alive at 85 with smaller payments then the guy dead at 68 who never received a dime.

    Your son has the persistence for a service academy! Tell him that he can e-mail me if he has any questions.

    Better yet, he should talk to a retired Marine O-5 (USNA '90) who's just a few miles away from him in Norfolk: Rob Aeschbach at Norfolk Financial Advisor – Fee-Only Financial Planning For Military Families

    I mean this seriously; Rob just started his CFP business and has been helping servicemembers with their finances for years as a volunteer at the Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society. He gives away a great NMCRS military-friendly budgeting spreadsheet. Our families hang out together at FinCons, and Rob was a big help when my daughter was squaring her own finances away in Norfolk during her training. He'll help your son with any questions about either finances or USNA.

    Nico's or Uncle's Fish Market. But you can get good fish at any of about 250 places on Oahu...

    Sounds like a great plan-- and every year when his pay goes up, he can try to boost his contributions!

    My daughter is six months into her five-year obligation, and she's already talking about going to the Reserves after those five years. She's going to take it one obligation at a time and see how she feels, but until then she's saving as much as she can. She's spent over half of her life watching us parents enjoy financial independence, and she knows what a sweet deal it is...
