Q: I retired from the military, then became a civil service employee. My military time for retirement was based only on my commissioned time, i.e. from entry to extended active duty to the date I separated for retirement, but not including the ROTC summer basic training I received before getting the commission. For civil service retirement computation, can the six weeks of ROTC basic training be included since it was government employment, paid at the E-3 rate? Of course I would need to make a deposit for that time. A: No.
