Career soldiers and conscripts Some soldiers, such as conscripts or draftees, serve a single limited term. Others choose to serve until retirement; then they receive a pension and other benefits. In the United States, military members can retire after 20 years.<ref>{{#invoke:citation/CS1|citation |CitationClass=web }}</ref> In other countries, the term of service is 30 years — hence the term "30-year man".
