    Well, ladies and gents, effective 0001 hours today, I retired from the USCG after a combined 20 years of service between the CGR and Army National Guard.  As much as I would have liked to have stayed, I had to go as I had 30 years of service because of a significant amount of IRR time.  Per statute, 30 years is the max one can serve. 

    If I had to do it again, I sure would.  The CG has been great to me.  Lots of good training and good travel experiences.  I was luck enough to spend most of my time in an assignment that allowed me to directly use my civilian skill set in the CG. 

    I'll try to stay active here on the forums, but as time goes on, I expect my info will become somewhat dated.

    Regards, CPORJM (ret.)

    Congrats. Retirement is awesome. It is nice to have a bit of money that allows you to work at something else but still have a safety net if it doesn't work out.

    By the way, you could have served more than 30 years but you would have to have sold your soul and become an officer.

    Congratulations!

    I retired three years ago. The first few months were difficult, as I kept thinking that I should be somewhere, doing something, in uniform. After awhile, that feeling passed, and now I am very, very thankful to be retired.

    When you find yourself missing it, think about things like GMT, PHA, doing marks, and signing off on the constant stream of special request chits that are submitted to you.
