Today I am officially retiring from the USAF. This is a special day. Unfortunately my family cannot be present, but they are as always with me in spirit. For the last 20 years i have defended the Constitution and been an Airman in a great and noble service. While there have been times where my pride was hurt, and i had serious quandries about my service, all in all i am glad my service has been deemed honorable. In a small private ceremony i have been formally relieved of duty, but now that i put down the sword of national defefence i can turn to see that my way into the future is lit with the torch of liberty; that glorious light that has guided my way throughout my military career, and shows me and my fellow citizens ever onward toward a brighter future. My privlidge to serve, my thanks to St. Joan d' Arc for watching over me . Per ardua et astra!~
