    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.

    Ex post facto - "after the fact" [Latin] - would fit if you are no longer employed with whoever it is that you are writing the letter for, but still requesting "retirement" after the fact.

    It sounds official when it's in Latin. True story.

    I was going to add a suffix and not tell him what it meant.

    Then you had to go give him a nice answer.

    Ya new here or something?

    Actually, I am going to use the word " retroactively ", but I would not have come up with it without your help.

    Actually, my retirement pay will be 100% of what I received when I drilled and attended summer camp.

    100 % x $ 0 = Zero!
