Oh it will be nice to start while you are still in the military and be rather young. That will allow you to build slowly, keep it tight and learn. Will you have retirement income when you leave. Once I turned 50 I was eligible to collect on mine. It sure is nice.

Good luck, David

Yes I will get my retirement at the nice old age of 40. Lol. It will be nice to already be stable and not have to work for someone else.

At your age, man you can get all you ducks in a row. If you get the right equipment and build a nice route before you retire. After you get the hang of managing things. You will be able to be as big or small as you would like.
