Offer early retirement at 15 years or max retirement at 20 years

Offer early retirement for service members at 15 years of service. Addtionally, max out retirement plans for 20 years of service vs. the max of 30 years of service. Too many members stay in past 20 years which hold up advancements for junior members and most of the time they are getting these huge paychecks and not doing a whole lot to contribute toward their service.


Offering early retirement with a reduced retirement percentage would save the government millions of dollars over the course of a year.

I agree to have my idea, not my name or information, posted online. YES
