Things You Are Not Supposed to Know About a Military Career

Available on Amazon and Google Books

A Practical guide for any young person considering a military career that analyzes the traditional career path and provides proven alternatives that lead to success, options and most importantly maintenance of the individual and freedom of action.

This book is for young folks that are considering a military career the knowledge that there are alternative paths to reaching retirement. The traditional path is fraught with risk, a person simply must hit all the marks and timelines in order to reach retirement. Obviously, based upon historical numbers a person has between a 60 and 70 percent chance of success assuming you stay out of trouble and do your job well. But there are outliers. During the last reduction in force, I observed otherwise quality folks shown the door before retirement.

Beyond that, the traditional path requires a person to become a careerist. On that road, you simply must look out for your own career. This sometimes entails ingratiating yourself to people you do not like or respect. It might mean a loss of dignity. It means stress and it often places you at the mercy of luck and hope.

The plan presented in this book frees a person from almost all of that. One can craft a career that avoids the stress of “up or out” and still retire with 20 years of service, with a nice pension, and many opportunities to either work or pursue other options.
