Sample Air Force Retirement Poem

Award Wording Details

RECIPIENT NAME

Retiring after Years of Service
From the United States Air Force

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 the freedom to demonstrate. It is the airman, not the lawyer, who has given us a right to a fair trial.

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

HAPPY RETIREMENT!
