Now I get it, literally.

Keep in mind from where this is coming. When I was a PFC many years ago, I received savings bonds. There was some sort of quota in the battalion or brigade; anyway, everyone had a savings bond it seemed. Once the six month period was up, I would cash my bond. I never really paid attention from where they came. I was aware that one could have Finance at Benjamin Harrison (then) hold them for safekeeping--is that still possible or did that end some years ago?

I was still under the impression that the bonds came thru DFAS Cleveland since the main phone number for retiree pay is there at 1-800-321-1080. I received my bond a few days ago--and it was sent out thru DFAS Denver on 3/12.

I suppose if I was still in the service I would know all this. Hope this helps someone else.
