Name of Retiring Sailor
Retiring after 23 Years of Service
From the United States Navy
1988 - 2011
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 (Retiring sailor's Name),
Who salutes the flag,
Who serves under the flag,
And whose coffin is draped by the flag.

Retiring from the military is a special moment for any member of the U.S. Armed Forces; a time to look back at the retiree's dedicated military service to his or her country and a time to look forward with anticipation as the next civilian chapter unfolds. Military retirement is an occasion that certainly deserves a congratulatory gift.
The Crystal Sailboat military retirement gift, exquisitely cut into the shape of a sail, projects a sense of moving forward. This unique military gift reminds the retiree and military officers that there is a world of opportunity that still lies ahead.
Personalize this gift with a military retirement poem or your best, personal wishes. This gift is warm and unique and will last as long as the retiree's dedication to his country.
