Bainbridge- 1st Sergeant Royce Davis is retiring after 27 years in the service.

     He signed up with the Navy immediately after high school, and joined the Army 4 years later. Davis has worn a number of shirts in the Army. He was in an infantry unit, a combat engineers division, and a transportation company. But Davis says the camaraderie is the hardest part to leave behind. "Being here, being around the soldiers, whether we're in the field, in the armories, just being around the soldiers, that's what I'll miss the most," he says.

     Davis is taking retirement so he can spend more time at home. He says he especially wants to take care of his son, who was injured recently in a car accident.
