2. 20 years is the target

Anyone who has served 30 seconds in uniform knows that retirement benefits start only after you have completed 20 years of service. Military retirement is generous . . . I know . . . after 28 years in uniform, I am VERY GRATEFUL each month when I salute my mailbox and pull out that check.

This guy left after 16 years. No doubt he figured his fame as "the SEAL who shot Bin Laden" would open lots of doors and bank accounts for him. Didn't happen, so, now he's whining.

Here's a tip for the former SEAL . . . some wisdom passed on to me by one of my instructors in Special Forces training: "Get in the game or get out. Whining is not an option."
