I have only recently opened a Roth TSP option. Between the Roth and Normal TSP, I max out the current 17,500 contribution.
I also have a relatively small amount of money in a USSPX Index mutual fund which was my first attempt at branching out my investing.
I have mid 5 figures that are sitting in a very low interest savings and checking account. My income and career is very stable and can expect a military pension. In 8-10 years, my wife may begin to work part time but probably not until then. What would be a good use for investing my available assets? Should I open a spouse Roth through Vanguard and max that out?
We are currently overseas and will need to buy two cars when we arrive stateside again (low cost used vehicles). We have discussed pros and cons of buying a house, but have no idea where in the world we would like to end up living in after I retire from the military.

I can have the maximum for this year (17,500) in my TSP, either 401k or Roth(k). I can also have a separate Roth IRA in my name at the maximum of 5500? That would give me for 2013 a theoretical maximum of $23,000 tax advantaged retirement contributions?
