Mission
The mission of the Retiree Activities Office (RAO) is to provide information helpful to retirees of all services.

As the base level component of the Air Force Retiree Council, the RAO operates under Air Force Instruction 36-3106. It is supported by the 42nd Air Base Wing, providing a liaison between the active duty units at Maxwell-Gunter and the retiree communities of all branches of the armed forces.

The RAO is continually recruiting dedicated personnel with a military background who may wish to join our staff of those who are "Still Serving." 

For more information about retiree activities, contact the RAO at (334) 953-6725 or by e-mail at retiree.affairs@maxwell.af.mil.

Background
A Retiree Activities Office is established at all major U.S. Air Force installations around the world. In the AF, all offices are staffed by volunteers. Our challenge has been and still continues to be finding and sustaining a staff of enthusiastic and dedicated volunteers to avail themselves of their knowledge to serve the community.
