“Dear Mr. Sims,

It was with great sadness and excitement that I inform you of my acceptance into the Air Force this week. I have been provided with my basic training date and will leave for San Antonio on May 2. Therefore, this is my resignation letter to provide you with written confirmation that my last day of work here is May 1, 2015.

You have been a great mentor for me in this field of aircraft maintenance. I know that I would never have finished my certifications and gained entry to the Air Force as a non-commissioned officer, if I had not worked for you. You have propelled me forward in my career and for that, I am thankful.

I want to make sure I do everything you need for me to do to ensure a smooth changeover for everyone in the crew. Please let me know what your expectations are during my last two weeks here.
