    Civil service is a great job - and - it gets you a good discount at hotels.
    I'm a teacher and am always happy when that's counted as a government job!

    Unfortunately none of those crazy California style gov't. employee pensions for mil folks. Same boss and yet the military gets the short end of the stick. Just imagine a world where an SPC retires on a six figure pension. lol

    With a name like Frugal, I'm betting you're not getting one of those pensions either.
