dear beauty ,

its hard to understand for them the reality ,its completely different mind ,
they dont even try to understand you ,

(Kardjali, what is there to understand ? The "reality" is that Ms Beauty writes of Military Pay entitlements, of which she is not a competent expert, yet pretends to be one making her statements of fact, when indeed there is no fact at all.)

6tot te ne razbirat na6ia ezik :) ,

(I kakvo ima tuka da ne razbirame? Ot kade si tolkova siguren, che ne rabirame vashia ezik?)

but time will show ,doesnt matter :)

(Yes time shall reveal all, it matters not, chakai malko !)

beauty:

I didn't retire when I got out of the military, and I did get separation pay, not severance pay. And the word is INVOLUNTARY:

You sound more and more like lawmerchant, complete with capital letters.

EXCELLENTLY,Mr.BULERICAN!

Just Separation Pay does not have anything to do with retirement!
(Ummm, I said that in my post did I not ?)

It can be offered by the Secretery of Defense also when a military member resigns.
Please,read Sec.5597 USC supra!
(I need not read anything thank you. I retired 15 years ago, the policies and procedures of the US Military/Government interest me not at all.)
(Resignation, Reduction in Force, Selected MOS Reductions can all produce a payment of Separation pay.)
( I spent 18.5 years in the US Army Finance Corps(MOS 73C/D, until 1992 I fully understood and applied daily all aspects of Military Compensation.)

Severance pay is offered for UNVOLUNTARY termination of an employement contract,usualy in the private sector.
("Severance" pay as an entity is not a part of Military Compensation, the term is Separation pay in any and all applications.)
(Perhaps you need someone as a consultant that truly understands the Military Pay System.)

beauty:

I can't speak for Bulerican's situation, because I left the military years before he did, and then came to work for the Army in Germany a good decade after that. But neither when I left the military nor when I retired as a civilian employee have I ever been asked to return my severance payments.

When you speak of small retirement benefits, though, you seem to be overlooking the benefits that retired military personnel have, an important one of which is the right to continue to do their shopping at the post exchanges and commissaries of the military, especially overseas, as Bulerican is. This reduces the living cost considerably, which allows the retiree to spend a greater percentage of his pension on other things.

You're beginning to sound like another edition of lawmerchant.

TO Bulerican:

I do not believe you would be able to survive in Germany on your $950,- monthly pay check from the USArmy.

(Sorry to disappoint Beauty, but my retired pay from the US Military is a great deal more than $950, to be exact it is $1125.00 after taxes.
However that is pocket change, my discretionary piss in the wind money, compared to the Euro 3000 (after taxes) I receive as salary from the company I work for. Add to that the Euro 400 - 1000 I receive monthly for personal appearances with my rockband Catweazle and it becomes clear that our family does NOT "survive", we do quite well thank you.)

So...do not tell me farytales!
(Why should I tell you fairytales, I need not impress you, nor do I try, if the truth is not enough for you then correspond with someone else please.)

I do cases for American veterans therefore i know that recently the benefits are not very exiting. (Exiting ? Surely you mean ex"c"iting ?)

(As a retired servicemember, I would not know what "veterans" are receiving for benefits nor do I care, although technically a "veteran" a retired person is in a whole different category than someone who served and got out. I have not looked at my online retired pay account lately, but I believe we are getting 3% added to the retired pay this coming year, or another $36 or so.)

Beside this they make you to reimburse the US Army for the separation pay which you,Veterans got.

(Separation pay is usually paid to those servicemen getting out between 10 - 20 years of service(By reduction in force selections, or by selected MOS), if a servicemember returns to active duty and then does in fact retire, or in some cases is given a disability rating for service connected injuries, they may be required to reimburse the US Government for the Separation/Transition pay.)

(As a retired servicemember, separation pay was not received, nor must I repay anything to anyone concerning my military service. Toughest thing I have to do each month for my retired paycheck is check my bank account online to see how much money I might need to move about (CD's, T-Bonds, other long term investments etc.), usually I merely confirm the deposit and there it stays, makes vacation time real real nice.)

Btw, I started receiving that retired pay at age 39, the first check coming on 31Jan92, approximately $210000.00 of lovely retired pay has been paid to me thus far. I love those American taxpayers, God bless them all. 8-)

Bulerican-
Good morning and guten Tag!
Just about everyone who posts here regularly could be cited for occasional bouts of silliness that have been taken the wrong way by one person or another. We're just a bunch of PEOPLE, after all. No malice intended, honestly, either now or before.

Comments are full of nothing and stuuuuuuuuuuupid!
You and others, I do not need to name, because they fit so well in the picture,
use the forum to attack nicks who do not write the way you think!
Instead of having a dialog, you put on a diatribe about a "nick" and what it actually represents. Seems right from a children sandbox! LOL

I think you are being sarcastic when you called yourself "beauty". I think that only an extremely ugly person who wishes that she was a beauty would give herself a nic like this. A beauty wannabe. Dream on, baby!

BULERICAN !!!

I really am disappointed with you...

Sometimes you are a real human being, and sometimes you can be a real ...
( the missing word is/was M - E - A - N - I - E ) 8-P***

Was it really necessary ? (Absolutely when I am being silly)

When you see this it will probably be morning, so Dobro Utro. (Dobro Utro, Guten Morgen, Buenos Tardes, Good Morning)
