Retirement Ceremonies

The Office of Special Events at the United States Naval Academy coordinates retirement ceremonies for eligible Alumni, as well as any military service member currently stationed at USNA. We will be happy to provide you with assistance in venue selection and reservation, time deconfliction, event planning, and post-ceremony reception options.

Eligibility: USNA Alumni (regardless of duty station) and military service members currently stationed at USNA are eligible to retire at the Naval Academy. If eligible, a standard retirement ceremony setup will be provided from the Superintendent’s cost center. Additional ceremony setup requests and all costs associated with retirement receptions will be the responsibility of the prospective retiree.

Please see the retirement checklist for amplifying information and planning factors.
