I am closing my 52 years of military service. When I joined the
army, even before the turn of the century, it was the fulfillment
of all my boyish hopes and dreams.
The world has turned over many times since I took the oath on the
plain at West Point, and the hopes and dreams have long since
vanished, but I still remember the refrain of one of the most
barracks ballads of that day which proclaimed most proudly that
old soldiers never die; they just fade away.
And like the old soldier of that ballad, I now close my military
career and just fade away, an old soldier who tried to do his
duty as God gave him the light to see that duty. Goodbye.

Don't think of retiring from the world until the world will be sorry that you retire. I hate a fellow whom pride or cowardice or laziness drive into a corner, and who does nothing when he is there but sit and growl. Let him come out as I do, and bark.
