Figure 13-11 shows you a picture of a chief petty officer
receiving a shadowbox from the command master chief
during his Fleet Reserve transfer ceremony.
Additionally, during the Fleet Reserve and/or
retirement ceremony, the members spouse is
recognized and presented a Certificate of Appreciation,
NAVPERS 1650/59 (fig. 13-12), for a wife or a
Certificate of Appreciation, NAVPERS 1650/62, for a
husband. Both of these certificates are stocked by the
Chief of Naval Personnel (PERS 27). Also, both of
these certificates are prepared at the command level and
signed by the commanding officer.

to another activity for further transfer to the Fleet
Reserve or Retired List, the pre-separation ceremony
should be conducted by the last duty station and not by
the activity to which a member is transferred.
