Here are a few items that may of interest!!


Birthday Celebration

Today a request came in to the Retiree Activities Office from the daughter of a retired Air Force member who will be celebrating his 99th birthday.  She is helping her father celebrate this monumental birthday with a trip to a Miami Marlins baseball game on July 14th at 7:10 pm. They are playing the LA Dodgers.


Her father would like to reconnect with other military retirees.  He was an Air Force bomber pilot.  To do this, his daughter has secured the Fiesta Suite at the Marlins Park which has 24 seats. She is hoping that some of you may be interested in joining her father and a few of his family members on July 14th.  She has 20 free tickets available. 


If any of you in our retiree community would be interested, please respond to the colonel's daughter, Deb Blackmore.  Her contact information is or 650-796-5373.
