While in the Navy I once was REQUESTED to attend a briefing on how I would really like to HAVE to complete 30 years of service in order to retire and then I would LIKE to wait until I was 65 years old to start collecting it. Everyone please nod your head in agreement. It didn't happen. I only did 26 years and started collecting immediately.
Follow the CONFERENCES and don't forget to nod your head in agreement.
