Sample USAF Retirement Poem

Award Wording Details

RECIPIENT NAME

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
