I just received my retirement orders in the mail yesterday. Effective date 31 December 2007. It will be 27 1/2 years, 7 on active duty and the rest in the active reserves. I can't wait. It's been a good career, but it's time to hang up my Air Force wings. I've been fortunate to do what I've wanted to for so long. Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
