Jake,

Max out your TSP. Quit worrying too much about beating the index and max your tax advantaged accounts. You can contribute 10% of your base pay and all incentive pays (Airborne, flight, etc) to the TSP. Next year the 10% cap lifts and you can contribute up to $13k (I think - it's the same limit as for 401(k) plans).

Also, come on over to Military Fools where we discuss military related finance items frequently.
