hello all,

I'm an 8 year Army veteran who is due to separate next week. I started the TSP when I was a private back in 2000 and kept my contributions going between 5 - 10% ever since. I just found this forum and I look forward to learning more about taking control of my investment. I haven't played much with my funds; for a long time, I was 33% into the C, S, and I funds. Now for the last couple years, I'm in the most aggressive lifecycle fund and I hope to gain some insight into how I can make informed decisions about my fund allocation.

Thanks!

Grove is a very cool name. :cool:

We're honored to have ya aboard and very appreciative you hung in there for 8 faithful years for all of us. Way to go my friend! I've got my Honorable Discharge within arm's reach.

We're going through "growing pains" with the limited IFTs and many are spooked with what the year has brought and with the uncertainty of what's to come - but it sounds like you've got a winning style so we can equally gain from you.
