Everything you said was true. I am the unit Retention NCO and I am surprised by how much soldiers do not know about their benefits. Heck...I am surprised by how much I DID NOT know about MY benefits for years!

No one tells you these things. And it is up to the rest of us experienced soldiers to do just that.

Here is my experience...

I was active duty for 7 1/2 years, I was married to a soldier (a CPT) so I know the ins and outs of both sides, and I am now ARNG who has served many different ways in the NG (ADSW, ADT, AT, TEMP AGR, TEMP TECH, and now Full time TECH). I have done and seen alot of stuff and I am still learning. I can't believe I am almost 40 and the things I don't know drive me crazy.

SO I will gladly help out on this board. Hopefully my experience will help out somehow.
