I am an Air Force Officer who unpon retirement from active duty opened several small businesses. The wife and I have reached the current level of being an "accredited investor." Knowing that SSI and retainer pay from my Air Force duty would hardly maintain our standard of living upon full retirement from our businesses I began intensive study of investment alternatives. I have taken the time and effort to become a sophisticated investor no matter what level of liquid net worth I currently have. I strongly oppose any limitation the SEC would put on me to qualify as an "accredited investor."
