A Special Retirement Cake For 40 Years of Service

Every retirement party should have a special cake and after 40 years of service to our country Henry A. Moak, Jr had an extremely special one. He celebrated his retirement with a c-ration pound cake from a drab olive can he received as a Marine helicopter pilot off the Vietnamese coast in 1973. He vowed to hang on to it until the day he retired and he did just that.

After daring anybody "gutsy" enough to share the pound cake with him, he had one taker, retired Lt. Gen. Paul T. Mikolashek took an even bigger piece. The cake was declared to be "good" and "the same as it always was".

Congratulation Col. Moak... and thank you for 40 years of service to this Nation.
