Well I am going to OKC next week for my last B52 meeting, when I get back I have three days of work. Then I will be hanging up 37 years of service.
For the past 37-years, my dad has answered the call to service in support of my beloved United States Air Force, and your United States of America. He moved from town to town with his professional skills and commitment in tow. There were many sacrifices made over the past 37-years. None more important than the next. For almost four decades, my dad pulled long hours, traveled the world, and in short, pulled his fair share toward ensuring the freedoms we take for granted.
Dad...I'm sorry I won't be able to make it to your retirement. You see...I like you am committed! And right now, that commitment has brought me to Baghdad Iraq! I wish you well. Maybe in 20 more years...you will come to my retirement! I love you and THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE & COMMITMENT.
