My military career
« on: December 04, 2017, 07:14:14 AM »
Good morning everyone.  It is with a heavy heart that I announce to you the end of a wonderful career in the greatest air force in the world.  Yesterday was my last official day in the in the uniform, and I will officially be retire by 14 Dec.  Throughout my career, I had the privilege and honor to serve with some of the best men and women in the world.  I also lost a couple of friends and great Americans along the way.   I would like express my most sincere thanks to all who served with me, and thanks to all who supported me during all these years.

By the time it's all over, I will have served a total of 34 years, 9 months & 28 days.  All I can say is, where did it go?  If I had to do it all over again, I would sign up without any hesitation.   

I'd like thank our wonderful Nation for opening the doors to my parents, and for giving me the privilege and honor to serve in the best military in the world.  God bless America!

I will continue to work, and I landed a straight civilian job here on base.  I will continue to be involved with military one way or another, but without the uniform.

It's a bitter sweet feeling now that I will not have to wear the uniform.  Go Air Force!!!!!

Enjoy your retirement, you've definitely earned a break. Thanks for all your service years, not many spend that much time doing one thing but the good thing about the military is you get to travel and see a lot of this world, some places good, some not so good. I'm sure your family is proud of you, I don't personally know you but I'm glad to know you on here and of what you've accomplished.

  PS. Go Marines ;)

Congratulations on a fine career and the start of another one. It is stories like yours that easily remind me just exactly why this country we live in is so great. I was lucky enough to be born here, but families like your's coming to the U.S.A. make it an even better place to live. Thank you for your service and answering the call to safeguard all of our freedoms for so long. God Bless and good huntin.
