What's Your Plan?

From the first day you put on a blue uniform, you know this isn't a permanent gig. They won't let us do this forever, even if we wanted to. So it's not too soon to start thinking about what you want to do next.

Now is the time to dream, to make plans, to take action. Now is the time to get degrees, certifications, qualifications, etc. Now is the time to build networks. Cause a 20-year career is over a lot sooner than you might think.

And then what?

And the 0-6 said something very similar, "When do you want to retire"--so he asked the brand new second lieutenant.

Do think about these things.
