Re: Big goals or big dreams?

Yea military disibility is a very protected thing. Not only can you work and still receive it but you could also claim social security disability if you qualify and your military disibility is one of the very few ways to make money that does not reduce your social security amount. I don't currently claim S.S.D because I do consulting work that earns me almost 6 figures a year but when I do decide to "retire" I do qualify and will need to decide at that time if I feel the need to apply for and receive that money as well. In fact millitary disibility is so protected even if the IRS sues me and seizes all of my assets they can not touch my millitary disibility check, its not counted for child support(I have no kids so) or alimony, or anything at all. Oh yea and I don't get taxed on it either. But trust me I would trade it all to take back the reasons I am receiving it. It took me a long time to even apply because I wrongly felt shame about it, but was finly made to realize I did earn it and it is compensation for what I did/risked/lost. And this is something I would imagine most vetrans struggle with and that's why it is very wrong for you to verbalized your thoughts on such a thing. Please in the future before you question a vetran on weather they are frosulantly receiving benefits take into consideration what they could have potentially lost in order to earn it and ask yourself if it's really worth asking them about it to put your
mind at ease about paying your taxes.

shellback,

i have great respect and admiration for all military men and women, i understand that they make endless sacrifices and potentially the ultimate sacrifice to uphold our freedoms.

you shouldn't feel ashamed to apply for benefits that you are rightfully entitled to. if you deserve it then you should absolutely take it and don't let anyone tell you different. i know nothing about the details of your condition, and the details truly are none of my business. (the only reason i made that wisecrack was because you had shared the information with the forum... if it wasn't meant to become public, i thought that you would have kept it secret; one cannot post something on a forum and expect that nobody will comment on it.)

anyway, I really *really* hope there are no hard feelings, my wisecracks are just wisecracks and nothing else. i have great respect for you that you didn't just write me off and ignore me as others may have already done.

i wish you well, and i'll see you around the forum!


edit: maybe we should start this thread over it will stay on track better LOL. cheers!

Re: Big goals or big dreams?

I ended up purchasing a 48' trimaran today. I ended up purchasing it in baja California instead of somewhere on the east coast. So I figure it will be a little easier seas and after going down to panama and through the ditch and cruising the caribian for a while I'll have pleanty of sail experience before I finally sail her home to Boston. Plus I cheated a bit and got a boat you can sail with one hand lol. Virtually everything on the boat is fully automatic and runs at the push of a button.

Well guy your confused as to what corresponding means I think.
Compared Displacement in monohulls and tonnage(internal volume) in multi's to get more of a apple to apple comparison going.
