Hello TSPTalk,

I've been on the forum for a few weeks taking in as much information as possible before I "offically" joined the forum.

I'm a Infantry Officer in the US Army with 2 years of serivce as of this month. I currently have 5,000 invested in the 2050 L-Fund contributing around $525 a month. Look forward to learning as much as I can from this community, thanks.

prolly cause hawaii's cost of living is so high, you have no chance at buying property or retiring safely without being a saavy investor. real estate costs are astronomical :(

there's a price tag for paradise!

maybe i could find a rich cougar in kailua to be my sugar mama ;)

Welcome. You are doing good, start early and invest what you can. Each year when you get a cola (or a promotion) add more to your TSP. It's just a shame you don't get matching funds, but it is what it is.

In 20-25 years (or more) you'll have a good size next egg. :D
