Whereas, his numerous State Guard awards and decorations include the Medal of Merit with Bronze Oak Leaf Cluster, the Meritorious Service Medal with Bronze Oak Leaf Cluster, the Commendation Medal with Bronze Oak Leaf Cluster, the State Guard Service Ribbon with Four Silver Stars and Two Bronze Stars, the Military Readiness Ribbon, and the Governor's Unit Citation; and

Whereas, after twenty-seven years in the State Guard, Brigadier General Boyd joined the South Carolina Military Department to work with the Joint Services Detachment as part of the Governmental Directorate services where he served with distinction for another eleven years; and

Whereas, in his retirement, he plans to spend many hours of enjoyment with his wife and two children, Tammy Lee and Larry Allen, and with his loving grandchildren; and

Whereas, the South Carolina Senate is grateful for the years of dedication that Larry Boyd has devoted to the Palmetto State, and the members wish him many years of satisfaction in his well-earned retirement. Now, therefore,
