-I propose a poll to find a word to take the place of the word Retirement-
You've got a good point, Ivan!
"Retired" can mean a good many things. I was "retired" by the US Army after I got hurt and was thus put out to pasture well before I was ready. Most retired folks don't have kids in middle school anymore! Most retired folks are so because of choice and have planned for this event, hopefully successfully, in advance. Being "retired/disabled" with one's only real income those VA and SS disability checks can be a daunting proposition! It's tough when the US Army cuts you short before you had a chance to be "all you could be!"
