I'm curious what Armed Services retirees think about the long term viability of the military retirement pension system - in other words, will your pension be there in the next decade and beyond. I understand our national debt is going to be upwards of $24 trillion with Pres Obama's next budget.

Are you fearful that your pensions will be affected eventually - will Congress and the Fed renege? And if so, what's your backup plan?

No. My pension has been coming in faithfully now for 24+ years.

But I am sure some people are worrying about it...

I feel better now. Except over the last 24 yrs we didn't have the expected $24 Trillion debt that we're looking at. That changes things - a lot.
