He is officially retired as of 10:30 this morning he his no longer in the military
My dad joined the military September 17th 1981
He's been to sea. he's been posted
and 33 years later
He's living in the valley with my step mom and starting his new life of doing nothing!
I went to his retirement ceremony and I too received a certificate!
My dad when he first started !
My dad 33 years later receiving the Queens Diamond Jubilee medal
All his medals from over the years , which now he has in a box for show
Me and my dad in the newspaper in 2003 when he came home from being at sea for 6 months. I would not stop crying and I was not letting him go !
I'm very proud of him :)
