Hey all, I was just tooling around on www.staynavy.navy.mil looking at my possible retirement. I figured, "Let's see what retirement looks like after 20 years." I couldn't believe that being O-6 (which is not outrageous with 20 years in the medical community) could garner over $62K a year at 2021 (the highest year available). I figured at that time I'd be in my late 40's, and could easily continue on starting my own practice or joining in on another practice. I'd make the "big bucks" while keeping that $62K a year while not having to save a single penny of my salary for retirement. Am I being ridiculous here, because all you here is that one shouldn't do it for the money. MilMD please smack some sense in me!!!
