Active Duty Military Retirement Letter Request

Requested By

Thank you for your service to our Nation. As President George W. Bush is no longer Commander in Chief, he is unable to sign Retirement Certificates. Since leaving office, President Bush has been honored to send Military Letters of Appreciation to retirees with at least 20 years of service.

Your request will be processed in the order in which it was received. Please allow at least eight weeks for processing.

Unfortunately, due to the high volume of requests we receive, we are unable to conduct individual status checks. Please email info@ogwb.org if you have not received your Letter of Appreciation after eight weeks has passed from the date of your confirmed submission. If you do not receive a confirmation email upon submission, please resubmit your request. If your retirement ceremony is more than 6 months away, we kindly ask that you wait to submit your request until the ceremony is within 6 months.

If you would like to submit a request for a Letter of Appreciation for a civilian retiree, please email info@ogwb.org for more information as this form is reserved for military only.
* Indicates a required field.

Please use appropriate capitalization. Do not submit in ALL CAPS or all lower-case unless required for abbreviations or other special circumstances.
