Amount needed to live comfortably in Saigon

I did take some econometric courses in Grad School, have been following the issue for quite a few years and agree with you. Any thing serious enough to impact our SSI and Army retirement, means that the problems are so serious that the impact on our income is the least of our worries.

I know an Australian retired CSM and his pensions are comparable to America. But, he only gets a small part of additional pensions while we get all of ours. That could possibly change for us in the future. We try to live on roughly 50% of our total pension income. but the other half is paying mostly reimbursable medical bills.

there are some bad news we didnt know, the locals will cover up for it. Simply saying that crimes happened anywhere here, but didnt know its not in the news either.

You would have a good lifestyle retiring in Vietnam.

Actually, this depends on the specific individual. Most people are uncomfortable in a foreign country especially if they don't speak the language and if forced to live in a foreign country tend to cluster in "Little America's," "Little Japans," "Little Frances," etc. In fact a large number of Americans are not even comfortable moving to a different region within America. Someone from New York City may have quite a bit of trouble adjusting to West Texas. I suspect that this also holds true in the UK, France, Germany, etc.

Anyone would have a tough time adjusting to West Texas. El Paso was so ugly. Thats far far West Texas.

Not a big fan of El Paso, but, I do like West Texas. The family moved to Texas in 1851 and I'm 3rd generation Native Texan. I guess that it comes from being a Soldier, that fascination with the lay of the land and the battles fought on that land. The Comanche Nation and the Palo Duro Canyon had a lot of history.
