US Coast Guard 1979-1996*
Yeoman, First Class (E-6)
Mostly stationed on east coast, New England area, and the eastern Great Lakes (Cleveland, OH and Buffalo, NY).
*In 1996 & 1997 (if you all remember) Congress & President Clinton signed a bill that dropped the 20 year military retirement down to 15 years. Anybody E-5 and above could fully retire at 15 years. I weighted the pros and cons and decided to go for it after 17 years. Word has it that they had to shut it down real quick, because so many members got out!! It was called TERA (Temporary Early Retirement Authorization).
