It must vary from environment to environment and or Base/Unit to Base/Unit. They were all big events (even for some of the 'less' popular individuals) when I was still home in Halifax and were generally well attended. Here in Ottawa now, the few I have attended, same thing. When you are retiring, it is your 'right' to ask a co-worker to coordinate your DWD ceremony. There are more than enough samples floating around as well as the constantly updated Aide Memoire. If unsatisfied, I don't care your rank, go through your Div system and ask to see your Unit Chief. Getting a handshake out the door at 25 years is immoral and unacceptable and means someone is truly falling down on the job.
