Postby Penguine » Sun Nov 08, 2009 3:16 pm

11 OCt 1988I joined the Air Force, 1 Nov 2009 I called it quits. Time to hand it over to you younger folks.

Oh it feels good to not have to put on a chem suit anymore!

:beer: Congrats!! :beer: Still have a few more years to go but looking forward to the day. Thank you for your service and for the sacrifices you and your family have had to make over your career. Enjoy your retirement and if you ever make it out to Nebraska just give me a holler and I'll get you out.

The plan now is to continue working. You see a couple years back my wife cheated on me so I divorced her. She gets a portion of my retirement (gotta love judges, she cheats AND gets my money). If it werent for her getting my cash I could hunt all season and fish all summer, but no...

I got a job at a local company in the HR department. I spend my days doing interviews and background checks. Easy stuff.

To you younger folks... Thank you for your service.

Loosing your cash flow must suck, sorry to hear that. Congrats though on your retirement.
