The sentence goes: [FONT=Times New Roman, serif]...requesting an exception to policy to be placed on the retired list post_________ in spite of the 30 day requirement. [/FONT] The regulation states you must request retirement 30 days before retirement. I was discharged 10 years ago, but with (now) sufficient time to be considered retired. This new regulation was written last year authorizing retirement. So what would be the proper word to insert with the prefix of "post"? NOTE: This Retirement does not provide any pay - I'm hoping I will get a retired ID card out of this.
