LAMBERT IAP -- To all Lambert, Whiteman AFB and Det 1 men and women - my friends:
I cannot believe it's time to retire. As most of you know, I started counting down 24 months ago...and here it is - 3 and a half days to go.
My last duty day here is Feb. 5. We are having a luncheon that day and I hope you all can make it.
Thank you for the fond memories, for it has been wonderful working with all of you over the past years. I will miss you all terribly, think of you often and I promise to visit from time to time.
I received my puppy, "Chief", last week from Logistics Readiness Squadron and he is great! Thanks to everyone who gave a donation toward the pup fund and wine basket raffle...the proceeds bought the puppy.
I leave you with a few words of wisdom...
-Be proud of our heritage as Guardsmen and women.
-Perform your best, look your best, act your best, strive to be the best. Always.
-Be great Wingmen and look out for one another.
-Be accountable, be forgiving, be patient, be involved.
It's who we are.
Thank you for being a part of my successful military career. I could not have done it without each of you.
