Congratulations on starting saving for retirement!

With regard to the military TSP, note that for most purposes it is very similar to a 401k plan, so most (but not all) of the advice you see about 401k plans will also apply to the TSP.

You might want to also check out the "Military Fools" board in the "Fools of a Feather" section, and repost this question (or a link back to it) there.

There was a lot of discussion of the TSP there a few months back when the military part was starting up, although I haven't seen much lately.

P.S. And as an aside, thank you for your part in keeping my sorry ass safe from harm.
