Personalized USAF Retirement Gift Plaque (#316-1)

Presented to a Retired Airman

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.

We Wish You all the Best in Your Retirement!


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

As a friend or loved one enjoys their special moment in an air force retirement ceremony, you get the opportunity to thank them for their hard work and sacrifices. Honor airmen and USAF officers who are retiring to a new chapter of civilian life with a heartfelt military retirement plaque. Create something special that recalls their dedicated service and offers warm wishes for whatever their future may hold.

Our Air Force Retirement Plaques set the standard for unique, heartfelt gifts for just about any occasion. Celebrate the hard work of a loved one retiring from the air force with a stunning and patriotic plaque. An etched American flag proudly appears at the top of the plaque along with the symbol of the Air Force. From there, you can add personal touches like the retiree's enlisted rank insignia or their assignment records to further honor their accomplishments and dedication to their country.

With these customizable military plaques, you can add the retiree's name, rank, years of service and other accomplishments. Include who the plaque is from along with a special note to personalize the gift even more. The retiree in your life will be able to admire the plaque and look back not only on their years of service but also at the moment they received such a thoughtful gift from their friends, family members or loved ones.

Serving in the Air Force is no small feat, and the military retirement plaque you give a friend or loved one should be as impressive as their service.

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.
