Default Tomorrow, 3 Jun 2010...R-E-T-I-R-I-N-G...

...after several false starts I am finally RETIRING on 3 June...

I have put in over 36 years Federal Government service (actual time still being computed).

This time consists of 7 years Active Army (1972-1980) and 29 years in Civil Service (1981 to now)!

Let the partying commence...

Does this require purchasing a 40 of Olde English and pouring half out?

Congratulations and thanks for your service.

You are totally welcome. It's been my pleasure.

Nothing required...and OE is better than any AB product...if you like malt liquour...

CONGRATULATIONS... well deserved. Thanks for your service. I invite all to hoist a pint (or three) in your honor. Here is to many year of retirement brewing.

Cheers..

I've had a great career...and saw lots of the world doing so.

7 years Field Artillery on M109 155mm Self Propelled Howitzer; M114A1 155mm Towed Howitzer; M110 and A1 8 Inch SPH; M198 155mm Towed...1972-1980...

Civilian Service included: 5 years Small Arms Reparier and Inspector; 7 years as an Integrated Logistics Support Manager managing mostly Non-developmental items (item soldiers can use almost immediately) including the M119A1 105mm Towed Howitzer; Equipment Specialist for the M119, the Mine Clearing Line Charge (MICLIC) which breaches mine fields; the Volcano, a mine dispenser.

Tank-automotive and Armaments Command Logistic Assistance Rep (Field Services) Armament LAR, deployed twice to Kosovo (99 and 2000). Worked on all Army artillery (towed and SP) and small arms, Apache and Kiowa armament, and Chemical Equipment, some M1 Tank and M2 Bradley.

Last 6 years as the ES for the M109A6 Paladin SP Howitzer in all aspects of logistics to include provisioning, technical manuals, modifications training, etc. For the past 2 years I've been training 4 replacements to take over for me.

I have been stationed at Ft Ord, CA; Ft. Sill, OK; 3 tours at Ft Bragg (73-74, 79-80, 97-99), a tour at Ft Dix, NJ, 2 tours in Germany (75-79 and 99-2004, 9 years total), and 2 tours at Rock Island, IL (87-97 and 2004 to present). For the past 6 years I've spent 15-23 weeks a year on the road somewhere...
including Korea for 2 weeks every year for the past 5 years.

Basically, for a quick overview, if it goes bang and blows up crap I usually had a hand in it...(not the crap mind you...)
