    Well guys, After 33 years service, being shot twice, 2 surgeries, a half dozen scares, more stitches than I can count I have finally retired.
    And yes, if I had it to do all over again "I Would". It's been one heck of a ride. And just like some tv cop said the other night "It's like having front row seats to the greatest show on earth".
    You active guys hang tuff and be safe.

    Congrats, and enjoy the time.

    The hospital probably enjoys the break, too. :)

    Welcome back to the world!

    Find yourself an easy chair and hang on. It's a slow ride from here on out!

    From one retiree to another, congrats. Enjoy your retirement. I know I am enjoying mine. Now I have time to do things that I just did not have the time for like fishing, checking out Glock talk, etc.

    You're going to get bored. But in a good way.

    Congrats.... and I'll see you in the LaZBoy in ... oh .... 20 years or so.

    Congratulations LT Ward..., I mean, MISTER Ward. Congrats again.

    You collected 33 years of paychecks. Your new mission is to collect 33 years of pension checks. :)

    Congrats my fellow retiree and brother. May you enjoy many years of the good life. Remember this is now your time so enjoy it. Remember grammer school at recess? Now you do not have to go in when the bell rings. All the best to you.
