I’m definitely putting this one in my calendar!
I pride myself on being a good judge of character, and knowing who’s got the goods, and who don’t.
You were always one of my go to guys Dupe, back a million years ago, when I had the privilege of Sig’in with you.
I knew then, like I know now, you’re one of the good ones! Not just in your work, but in life.
I thank you good sir, for your dedication and loyalty, your tireless reliability, your sacrifice of self in the service of our country and your comrades, and your steadfast example of leadership worthy of the respect and admiration of followers and leaders alike.

I hope to be able to reminisce, and celebrate this occasion with you and yours, but, should that come to pass, I wish you all the best in this next chapter!
