    Military retirement

    Friday was my last day, and if 25 years of service taught me one thing (among many others) it is that in the government, there is a way around everything. After a few phone calls and e-mails, I was successful in one very important thing. The picture is od my "Appreciation Letter" from the White House. Since I know that our present Commander in Chief has no appreciation for us, I made THIS happen. (Note the Signature, auto pen or not, I don't care)

    Congrats... I'm assuming that is "George Bush's" signature? If so, which one? You started your service in 1988 and served under two Bush's.

    Didn't want a "Clinton" signature?

    It is Bush the younger. I was tempted to see if I could get both to sign it but didn't want to push my luck. This is available to any retiree, all they have to do is ask.

    That's good information. I'm sure many retirees would not want an Obama signature on their certificate.

    OK, finally something of 'thru's' that I can agree with. Now that he's gone.

    Death is too easy, for Obama to suffer it would take ridicule, media abandonment, and poverty.

    I'm not that picky, just want him gone forever.

    When I retired from the USMC after 30 years AD, I didn't really care about certificates or autographs. I just wanted my retirement check to show up in the bank!
