My husband did just over 20 years.
He gets a percent of his last ranks pay each month............we have the choice to sign up for and pay for tricare medical for the rest of our lives [which we do] this includes one eye exam every two year for free but we pay for all glasses / contacts if we need them, prescriptions filled at base are free. We also are allowed to use the base comm and other facilities........
My husband also gets the education benefits which he can either use them or not, if he does not use them he does NOT get the money instead of...........
It is better than some places BUT not as much as some people seem to think.

20 to 30 years. How much you get depends on your rank. Generally when you retire you get a few thousand a month.

Generally speaking you should serve at least 4yrs of honorable service, to get the same amount of college help, and other benefits
