Dear Colonel,
My reply did not say that you were receiving 80 to
85 thousand in retirement pay......It said that the
a current retiree would receive that amount when
combined with tax and health benefits. You are in
error about the COLA's. Military retirees received
a 3.6% COLA raise of 2011. The reason that we had
no COLA for 2009 and 2010 is the receipt of a sudden
inflation spike COLA in 2008 which quickly receded after
a large COLA which exceeded 5 percent. Of course, being
part of a special interest group we got to keep the
money. In 41 years of military retirement, my pay has
increased about 550 percent. Depending on your date
of retirement, I suspect you are close to current retiree
rates. By the way, a Lt Col with 40 years of service
will retire at 100 percent of base pay which will be
over $100,000.00. Forty years for an O-5 would be rare,
so I guess this provision was slipped in to benefit
some higher ranks. Who knows ? THANK YOU FOR YOUR
SERVICE which has become the equivalent of HAVE A NICE
DAY normally delivered with the same sincerity.
