Hello BP,

I retired from the military a couple of years ago and currently work for the Department of Defense. While in the military, I bought a couple of houses as primary residences that became rentals when I transferred. I was listening to a Financial Independance podcast that mentioned Bigger Pockets. I visited the site, listened to a couple of podcasts, and am ready to move forward with my plans for real estate investing part-time. 

I look forward to learning from you all and hope to be able to share my knowledge when I can!

@Scott welcome to BiggerPockets, there are a lot of military (and veteran) real estate investors in the community. Let me know how I can be of service!

This is a great place to learn and network. A lot of forum members are very knowledgeable in their respective fields related to real estate investing, whether that is real estate sales, wholesaling, flipping, rentals, lending, self-directed IRA and Solo 401k investing, or tax and legal guidance.

The site has quite a few tools that can be helpful for new members. I like the search features:

Alerts can be really helpful too:

There are a few self-contained guides that you can access here:
