The Hanscom Retiree Activities Office will host a Military Retiree Appreciation Day here Nov. 4 from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.

The annual event connects military retirees to the programs, services and resources available to them and their families, according to organizers.

“There are many government programs available that provide critical services and information to military retirees and this event allows us to connect those services with the people who need them,” said retired Marine Corps Capt. Dean Mottard, director of the Hanscom Retiree Activities Office.

This year’s retiree event will be held in the food court at the Main Exchange.

Agencies projected to attend include TRICARE for Life, Medicare, dental and vision service providers, Defense Finance Accounting Service and others.

The event is open to military retirees of all branches and dependents. All attendees must have appropriate base access. “Events like these renew the connection between military retirees and the lifestyle we once enjoyed,” said Mottard.

It’s the first retiree event since before the COVID pandemic.
