The things she carries: The story of Para swimmer and U.S. Army Sgt. Elizabeth Marks
I. Scars
 COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — U.S. Army Sgt. Elizabeth Marks ponders a question from the barista: What kind of coffee would she like? Mild, medium, dark roasts — the bronze, silver and gold of coffee. She smiles and offers a ready answer: “Whatever kind has the most caffeine.” Fresh from a grueling morning swimming practice and weightlifting session, Marks needs the energy. She grabs her cup, walks upstairs and snags a seat by the window. A few miles to her left, Pikes Peak climbs 14,114 feet into the crisp blue sky.
Marks, 25, has stolen away from the Olympic Training Center to savor this steaming cup of black coffee at a hipster cafe before going to “therapy,” or what she calls it when she gets work done on a tattoo that covers much of her right leg, which was severely injured when she deployed to Iraq as a combat medic. Her left leg sits in an IDEO (intrepid dynamic exoskeletal orthosis), a prosthetic device that makes it possible for her to walk. She doesn’t go anywhere without it.
The tattoo tells her life story. She puts her cup on the table and leans down to her right to examine it. She rubs her hand along it, pointing out the highlights, like an author flipping through her memoir.

National Guard and Reserve Early Retirement Age. (Thanks Charlie!)

National Guard and Reserve Early Retirement Age

This is another topic that generates a lot of questions from Guard and Reserve retirees who are nearing the age they can begin drawing their military retirement pay.

The normal Reserve retirement age is 60. However, members of the Reserve Component who served at least 90 days during a fiscal year on a qualifying active-duty mobilization after Jan. 28, 2008 are authorized to begin drawing retirement pay three months early for each 90 day period they served in any given fiscal year.

Service on or before this date does not count toward early retirement. (No word if legislation will be passed to make this retroactive to September 11, 2001).

Early retirement only applies to drawing retirement pay, and does not apply to receiving retiree health care or certain other benefits.

Here is more information about early retirement from the Guard or Reserves:
