U.S. Marine Corps Retirement

My last assignment before retiring was at Guantanamo Bay during the Cuban missile crisis. After surviving the battles against Japan, the Communist North Koreans, and China, as a member of the First Marine Division, I would not have lived through the Cuban War if it had happened. Those of us on Guantanamo would have been a turkey shoot for the Cubans. They had the high mountain around us. And if I had accepted the rank of E-8, I would have been in the Corps during the Vietnam War. All in all, $175 was not much money for what I went through, but I made the right decision to retire as an E-7 with 20 years service.

I retired on Friday at Quantico and went to work the following Monday in New York City as a civilian. I was told if you can make it in New York, you can make it any place in the country. I made it in the Big Apple, and I made it later on the West Coast in California.

I retired the second time from the workplace on my 55th birthday. I do not owe a penny to anybody, and my retirement income is now in excess of $100,000. This is my story and I'm sticking with it!
