After being the child of a franchise owner, working nearly every holiday and most of the seasons others were having a good time, I chose military service and have loved the 30 days paid vacation, federal holidays, modest tax bracket, and about to enjoy the COLA adjusted pension and low-cost healthcare.
In the end, I think we'll come out about the same and I worked less hours. :) Would never even consider doing it 'in retirement.'
Father's advice would be to get in, work hard, save the $$, and get out...5-10 years max.
Plus you get to hear us say (in all sincerity) thank you for your service, and we are not talking about delivering a sandwich to our table.
