Abstract:

Since the 1970s, the Department of Defense DoD has conducted periodic surveys of military retirees to obtain information on topics such as post-service activities, civilian work history, and use of retirement benefits. The 2003 Survey of Retired Military SRM was conducted to update previous findings by addressing many of these same issues. This report provides an overview of the results of the survey. The survey collected data on items grouped under several broad headings, including military retirement, employment situation in 2002, family and household information, use of commissary and exchange, combat-related disabilities, use and cost of medical services, and demographic information.
