You fall into the catagory that I would say absolutely! Shocker anyone? Your statement "If so, should I continue to fund my Roth IRA?" scares me though.

IMHO, the Roth should get all of your money first. Anything left over could fit nicely in either the International or Small Cap fund with your situation. The Roth, as I am sure you know, will grow tax free from this day to the next. The TSP will do the same except that when you want the coin, Uncle Sam will take his cut that you kindly invested for him.

Keep that in mind when you calculate what % of your pay to put in the fund.

Hope my .02 helps.
