    The event, both a show of appreciation and informational fair for U.S. Military Retirees and their Spouses, provided attendees access to a multitude of representatives from wellness and social groups. Banking services, Veterans Affairs, Social Security, personal finance as well as health and dental organizations such as TRICARE were also present.

    “This kind of thing can't happen without everyone coming together. We have to care about what it means to be a retiree, what it means to be a veteran, what it means to support and carry the torch forward. It’s important to who we are as a people, so thank you for being a part of this community.” said Michael J. Daniels, Deputy Garrison Manager during opening remarks.

    “Thank you to those in your midst who volunteer in our community both outside the fence-line and inside the fence-line to make our community better. It's really indicative of your life-long commitment to service. Thank you so much, because we could not do what we do as a community without the support which you provide.”

    Attendees were offered presentations from subject matter experts. A light lunch was served with refreshments and live music.

    The garrison will also host U.S. Military Retiree Appreciate Day at SHAPE Healthcare Facility tomorrow, October 16, 2021 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m., the event is open to all U.S. Military Retirees and their Spouses.
