I knew an Air Force Chief Master Sergeant who invited friends over the day he retired. He took his alarm clock and put it inside a shoe box with a pair of his uniform pants, shirt, and his spit-shined shoes, went to the back yard where he had a hole dug and held a formal funeral service. He went back in the house and took a nap.
