Yea! I'm finally retired -- but at the same time I have to confess -- there was a lump in my throat as I was driving off the base. Yes, folks - retirement to me was a little bittersweet.
Don't get me wrong - I am ready for retirement. After all, I gave 36 plus years to the Government! But I have to say that I was very lucky. Working with the military men and women was the very best job anyone could have and they are the ones I will truly miss the most. There is always a sense of pride working with them and you get to meet so many wonderful people from all over this great nation.
And to all the men and women in blue - I salute you!
First picture is my drive into Randolph Air Force Base in San Antonio Texas. The second picture is my last drive out. There goes that lump again!
