  • United Health Care (Tricare)
  • …and many others!

Who: Military Retirees from every branch of service in the local areas surrounding MCB Camp Pendleton

Why: Military Retirees that answered the call to serve their country are the reason we have the freedoms that we enjoy today. These men and women are the heroes that have paved the way for every person that has served after them and continue to defend this country and all that stands for. During these turbulent times, now more than ever, we must remember, recognize, and honor those that have fought for truth and freedom.

This event will serve a number of purposes:

1. Honor & Recognition
We will not forget those that have served this country. Your sacrifices will be remembered. Marine Corps Community Services will be offering small tokens of appreciation from its many food, leisure, and hospitality partners. We are rolling out the red carpet in appreciation.

2. Information
Receive the latest updates on programs and services that affect you as a military Retiree. The Better Business Bureau will assist in making aware of scams and illegal practices that target Retirees. Legislative updates, health care changes, retired pay information by DFAS, Veterans Affairs services, and more will all be discussed. You will be able to get answers to your questions on these and other issues from the subject matter experts.

3. Vendors
There will be numerous vendors on hand with information on different services to assist Retirees. Senior care and living, Sprint, USAA,  Better Business Bureau, Retiree councils, medical services, and others.

4. Win Prizes
