National Retiree Councils
The Military Retiree Councils provide a link between members of the military retiree community
– retirees, family members and surviving spouses living throughout the world – and the leaders of
their respective military service branches.
Each National Retiree Council is comprised of a board which consists of both senior NCO and
Officer retirees. The members represent geographic areas within the continental United States, and
at least one at-large representative.
The Retiree Councils meet annually to discuss retiree benefit issues. Upon conclusion of the
meeting, they report their findings directly to the appropriate member of their respective
service branch. These annual reports reflect the issues of most significance to the retiree
community that year.
Note: Rather than issuing an annual report, the Air Force Retiree Council, issues letters to
various Air Staff offices requesting support for specific items of concern. These letters are not
normally made available to the public.
