Does anyone know whether or not to include his rank (Captain)? It is one of FI’s friends. He is no longer in the military. Not sure if he could be “retired” at age 27, though, so I’m not sure if I should still use his rank.
I know he was not discharged or anything like that–he was in ROTC in college and I think he just finished out his time and then didn’t sign another contract.

I would ask your Fiance if he still “goes by” his rank.
I invited my mentor and her husband to our wedding (he was a Marine…) not sure rank b/c when I asked her she said they don’t use it anymore, that Mr & Mrs would be just fine.
So…. you may just ask 😉

The only way he’d be ‘retired’ at age 27 is if he became injured and was medically retired. Other than that, they have to serve 20 years.
Typically for officers, they have a certain amount of time they are commissioned for, if they want to keep going, they can, but otherwise, they are honorably discharged from the military.
Unless the first scenario I listed happened, go with Mr. It would be inappropriate to use the miltary rank.
