    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.
