Military Retirement Poem

Award Wording Details

RECIPIENT NAME

Retiring after 29 Years of Service
From the United States Navy

It is the sailor, not the reporter, who has given us freedom of the press. It is the sailor, not the poet, who has given us freedom of speech. It is the sailor, not the campus organizer, Who has given us the freedom to demonstrate. It is the sailor, not the lawyer, who has given us a right to a fair trial.

It is the sailor, like RECIPIENT NAME,
Who salutes the flag,
Who serves under the flag,
And who gave self-sacrificing
Loyalty to his country.

HAPPY RETIREMENT!
