Ron Serrano's USS Midway Navy Retirement and Lunch
For over 30 years, this sailor stood watch. Today we are here to say "shipmate, the watch stands relieved. Relieved by those you have led, guided, and trained. Captain Serrano, you stand relieved. We have the watch."
Ladies and Gentlemen, Captain Serrano will now report to Captain Laubacher and request to go ashore for the last time. "Ma'am, permission to go ashore." "Permission Granted."
There's not a lot to say to a man who has watched us for 30 years....except thank you. I hope the best for you and your family.
