This button celebrates the retirement of Joe Shakeenab from the United States military in 2010. Since retirement from military life, Shakeenab built a second career as a private leadership consultant, city councilman for Clarksville, Tennessee, community organization committee member and president of the Austin Peay State University alumni center. He also wrote two books: one about working for a US military service operation in Somalia in the 1990s, and the other a book of poetry "illustrating the phases (physical – moral – spiritual) of my fatherless life which I have grown to understand."
