Personalized USAF Retirement Gift Plaque (#316-1)


For it has been said so truthfully that it is the airman, not the reporter, who has given us the freedom of the press. It is the airman, not the poet, who has given us freedom of speech. It is the airman, not the agitator, who has given us the freedom to protest. It is the airman who salutes the flag, serves beneath the flag, whose coffin is draped by the flag, who gives that protester the freedom to abuse and burn that flag.

Sample USAF Retirement Poem (#316-2)


It is the airman, not the reporter,
Who has given us freedom of the press.
It is the airman, not the poet,
Who has given us freedom of speech.
It is the airman, not the campus organizer,
Who has given us freedom of democracy.
It is the airman, not the lawyer,
Who has given us a right to a fair trial.
It is the airman, like Jeff,
Who salutes the flag,
Who has served under the flag,
And Whom is now honored
for these freedoms in retirement.

Enjoy your days filled with the memorable
moments retirement offers. We are so
proud of you and love you always.

A gift from your fellow

Air force retirement is a special moment for any retiring airmen and USAF officers. The air force retirement ceremonies offer a unique way to thank the retirees, recall their dedicated army service and sacrifices to the country. The retirement parties offer us an opportunity to convey warm retirement wishes as air force veterans looking forward to a new future in civilian life.

At such a special moment, nothing honors those retirees more like an USAF retirement gift plaque, made especially for them.

The flag draws attention to this serious patriotic plaque. With the retiree's enlisted rank insignia and assignment records proudly presented, this Military Retirement Plaque is a great way to honor those that have served in the military and thank them for their dedicated service to the country.

A unique air force gift idea for your fellow airmen. A retirement gift that will be cherished and treasured forever.

Breathtaking in its appearance and in the sentiment behind the gift.

I ordered a gift for a friend who is retiring from the U.S. Air Force after 26 years. The etched glass award is nothing short of perfect. It brought tears to my eyes and I have no doubt it will be an incredible gift of recognition for my friend. DID Awards was diligent in their service and even verified the spelling of the events my friend had been recognized for (Hurricane Elena - I originally misspelled it). Will definitely order from them again.
