2. What should be my first priority, trading for my FIRE goals or paying off these debts? MUST I just throw money into the debt-full drive and put back my investments a while? Dave Ramsey would suggest paying down personal debt as fast as you can, but you also want to invest for your full employer match.
Set your Thrift Savings Plan contribution (to the Roth TSP) to at least 5% of your bottom pay. That’ll give you the Dept of Defenses full company/matching efforts. By tax laws, the matching efforts go to your traditional TSP. You then could continue to add more to your Roth TSP or even to your Roth IRA, because that year’s deadline passes then you can’t make retroactive contributions once. Or you could accelerate the payoff of debts that have mortgage loan of more than 4%. Id suggest paying down the higher-interest obligations before you start trading more for FI.
There’s, you don’t need to get fancy or overzealous on the investments. For your first few years of your job, you and your spouse will only spend money on your Roth TSP probably, her 401(k), as well as your Roth IRAs. Once you’ve paid off your debt, you’ll be able to speed up your investing with taxable accounts.
3. What investment tools do you utilize? Vanguard, Fidelity, or Schwab are all fine. More importantly, do not invest with other financial tools or firms. You’re going to deploy to isolated corners of the globe (and at sea) with limited (or no) bandwidth. Every other company besides those three (as well as perhaps USAA) is poorly-equipped to handle your customer service needs while you’re deployed.
