Post level ceremonies are conducted
Military retirement ceremonies offer friends, colleagues and others to thank the retiring veteran for his or her service and sacrifice. They are solemn occasions although humorous recollections about the retiree's experience in service are usually encouraged.
The formal ceremony usually has the following elements:
- reading of the retirees' biography
- presentation of a certificate of service for the military member, a United States flag and lapel pin
- presentation of a certificate of service for the spouse
We require 15 to 20 digital photos that reflect the retiree's career or personal interest.
As soon as you know you want to participate in a ceremony, contact your RSO who will make the arrangements.
