They made a presentation at the retirement party and talked about how much I love jazz and this particular drummer, so we would like to bring Mr. Quentin Baxter up and make a presentation.

They went out and found the guy, I had never personally met him, just listened to his music. He drove 120 miles to come to the going away party and shocked me and the crowd.

How cool is that? He really did a service for those in uniform.

A great day and a great career.

Congrats guys.........I am also retired Army after 22 years, and am now employed by DoD...........not sure what you guys did, but my skills aren't very marketable to anyone else.
