The Keesler Retiree Affairs Office will be sponsoring its annual appreciation day for military retirees starting at 8:00 a.m. Nov. 6 in the Roberts Maintenance Facility.

“The day is a simple way of saying thanks to those that served a career in the military leading to retirement,” said Senior Master Sgt. Fred King, Retiree Appreciation Day coordinator. “It is a virtual one-stop shop for all base organizations to meet the needs of local/regional retirees.”

This event will feature more than 30 displays with agency representatives from various organizations, including Keesler Medical Center, TRICARE, base legal office, Armed Forces Retirement Home, Veterans Administration Medical Center, Fisher House, Army and Air Force Exchange Service, and the base Force Support Squadron.

The Keesler Retiree Affairs Office covers the local areas between Baton Rouge La. and Mobile, Ala. There are more than 32,000 Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine and Coast Guard retirees.

If any media is interested in attending please contact the 81st Training Wing Public Affairs office by 4 p.m., Nov. 5 at (228) 377-2783.
