All US military branches have established directives which provide guidance for the support of retiree activities and services. For example, as part of that support effort, the USAF instruction (AFI 36-3106, par 2.5.7) directs that the installation commander will host an annual retiree appreciation day (RAD). This special day is meant to provide the retiree and his/her family members with the latest information about their retirement benefits and services. In addition, the RAD affords retirees the opportunity to network and share experiences with other retirees, hear guest speakers present on a number of retirement related topics, obtain or renew an ID, and gather information on a variety of services available to retirees.
For a number of unavoidable reasons, Patrick SFB has not held a RAD since the fall of 2015. However, the RAD returns this year to PSFB and will be held on Saturday, 19 October 2019 between 0900 and 1400 hours. The planning group for this year’s RAD have worked diligently to provide a varied and interesting agenda. We are hoping for a large turnout. As Director of Project Emeritus, I am encouraging all of our volunteers and their family members to join me at the RAD on the 19th of next month. Of course, other retired readers of this column are also invited and encouraged to attend. I look forward to seeing you all at the RAD.

Project Emeritus, a volunteer organization at Patrick SFB, is a program to solicit volunteers from the retired, active duty, dependents and civil service, to assist base personnel in mission support operations. Project Emeritus volunteers have been assigned to work at numerous base locations, including base personnel, the Wellness Center, the Visitor's Center and the Golf Course. Volunteers are used at Patrick SFB, Cape Canaveral and the Warbird Museum in Titusville. Volunteers give a minimum of four hours a week to support Team Patrick. Volunteers set their own schedules and select work in their area of interest or expertise. Many agencies on base are in need of assistance.
Retired military (all services), active duty, dependents and civil service who are interested in volunteering four hours per week supporting the Space Force and the Space Launch Delta 45 mission can contact a volunteer coordinator at 321-494-7656, email PSFBvolunteers@gmail.com, stop by 514 Falcon Rd, Building 415, Patrick SFB, Fla., 32925 or log on to Facebook.
