A Pirate Looks At Twenty

Posted By Blackfive • [March 12, 2005]

    "The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing" - Edmund Burke (1729-1797)

One of the most significant milestones of a military career is hitting the twenty year mark.  That timeframe allows one to retire.  Retirement is something that we all look forward to...military and civilian.

The twenty year mark is an indicator of motivation and dedication to the profession of arms.

Today, Greyhawk of the Mudville Gazette has served his country for twenty years! 

The Blackfive family would like to say, "Thanks, Greyhawk, for volunteering to support and defend the Constitution of the United States of America twenty years ago and continuing with your committment across three decades - bearing 'true faith and allegiance to the same'."

Congratulations on making it to twenty, that's an amazing accomplishment.  Knowing that Americans of your caliber are standing watch is a very comforting thought to us back on the block. 

And we should also send a special thank you to Mrs. Greyhawk and the kids for supporting the Founder of MilBlogs throughout his long career!  Military families are an incredible force multiplier and it takes a very strong and dedicated spouse to enable a successful career.

Be sure to tell ol' hawk and family congratulations on his latest accomplishment.
