Retirement!!!

Well, I retired yesterday!!! Now I can make up with my wife for 24 years of TX DPS and 4 years of USMC!!! Lots of hunting, shooting, fishing, and traveling in store for us!!! Glad I can retire at 50 while still young enough to enjoy it! It's been a great ride, but enough is enough - ready to spend time with the wife and family and do all the things I haven't had time for these past years.



*Moderator addendum: In recognition of Texas Troopers' retirement, this thread is to be the official retirement announcement thread for the LEO Duty Sub-Forum.

All future retirement announcements must be posted in this area and only this area please.

Thank you to all LEO's both active and retired for your service.

Stickied - Please post all future retirement announcements here.

Congratulations Trooper on your retirement. And, because I do believe that this is an important time in anyone's life, and because this is the LEO forum, I will be making this thread a Sticky.

So, from this date forward, all LEO's who retire should feel free to post their retirement announcement in this thread and only in this thread please.

All future "retirement" announcements belong here now.

Thank you Texas Trooper for your years of service, sacrifice and dedication and for putting your life on the line to preserve the lives of others. I am looking forward to posting my own announcement here in about four years from now.

Way to go Trooper! I'm counting the days, trying to hold out for 5 more years. That'll give me 30 years in TMRS and put me out at 53.

Congratulations! Enjoy it all. I did four years then switched to a agency with state retirement and lost those 4 years. I have 21 more years. So I will be 51 when I retire. You guys make me feel young being 30. Until I get to work and see all the punk rookies who are early 20's. I still can't believe I have been doing this job 8 years, time really does fly.

Congrats on making it all the way. I know the feeling of liberation after many years of being a law enforcement officer. I can assure you that retirement time can really go by fast however, so don't delay doing all those things you have been waiting to do.

Congratulations, I decided to continue to attend school so I can go into law enforcement instead of going back to active duty (tough choice) At my current age I'll be in my sixties when I'm dogged up and ready to retire. Congratulations, my dad says being able to retire at fifty-one was one of the best damn things to ever happen to him. Still young enough to enjoy life.

Retirement

Trooper,

Enjoy your retirement. I retired 12 years ago after 27 years and if it is any better I would have to be twins.

I'm close to your area as I live in Hobbs, New Mexico.
