The retirement package they offered him comes with benefits for the whole family and a 50-75% un-taxed income for 5 years. After that he will be re-evaluated and they will determine if he is fit to return back to duty, which would be great because those 5 years count toward your retirement. If not fit to return the medical retirement returns as it was. Either way we will be taken care of and have amazing benefits still.
The plan as of now is to move back to Kansas (in 90 days! AH!) and stay with my parents until Beau gets going in school and we get a little more settled. It will be so nice to actually be able to attend all of the fun family functions we hear about instead of just seeing everybody a couple of weeks a year. Zoey will even be going to Kindergarten with her cousin!
I will keep everyone updated on our new adventures. My mom joked around I'll be like the Kansas Pioneer Woman, except with a lot less money haha! Like Beau said, it has been a great 6 years. :)
