Default Why no pension for Scouts???

It's always struck me as odd that the Scout Service has never offered a pension to their retirees. Scouts is a military service with a lot of danger to it and who knows how many injuries/diseases from alien worlds. Besides a Scout ship that you may or may not get and some good cash out rolls, the retired scout seems to get the dirty end of the stick when it comes to retirement.

Can anyone think of a good reason for this. The only thing that I can think of is that Scouts are never retired but continue to work for the Scout Service through missions, patrons and grants but that seems a little far fetched.

Anyway, would anyone else care to share a few thoughts on this logic in the game?
