Is Early Retirement More Attainable Than We Think?

Submitted by on May 15, 2015 – 1:36 pm No Comment

In 2002, veteran Doug Nordman reached a crossroads that would redefine the way he viewed work, life, and early retirement. After serving 20 years in the U.S. Navy’s submarine force, he faced the possibility of starting a brand new career at age 41. Needless to say, he wasn’t thrilled at the prospect.

It wasn’t that Nordman didn’t want to continue working. Quite the contrary, really. As Nordman tells it, veterans, in general, have a burning desire to continue working long after their military service has ended. Whether it’s to continue helping others, to continue serving, or simply to feel relevant, the drive to be a productive member of society is deeply ingrained in most veteran’s psyche.
