Fellow Fools,
First off, let me say thank you for the rapid and kind responses. This seems like a great community. For those that were good enough to inquire further, allow me to elaborate....I am possibly going to get out of the service in 2008, but I would not cash in my TSP. I assumed that I would have to roll it over into something (probably a Roth IRA), but if I were allowed to keep it even though I were no longer contributing, that is another option I hadn't considered. My goals are definately long term, I am 31 with no major expenses in life. A little debt that I will knock out this year, and outside of that I plan on building as strong a portfolio as I can. When I get out of the military (If I do) then it will be to settle down and (gulp!) get married, so I want to have as much savings as I can acquire set aside for future house buying, weddings, etc. etc. In terms of the TSP options, I figured I should pick the investment plan that would pay off the highest while I am still contributing, but it is beginning to sound like that is not overly important. Any thoughts?
Thanks Again!
