Retirees mark your calendars.

Redstone Arsenal will hold its 48th Soldier for Life Retiree Appreciation Day events on Oct. 25. The intent is to provide a world class Retiree Appreciation and Soldier for Life Days event for our deserving military retirees, active transitioning military, and their families within the safety and comfort of Redstone Arsenal.

The event is open to all retired, transitioning active duty military, annuitants and their dependents, to ensure retired Soldiers and their families are kept up-to-date on changes affecting their retirement rights, benefits, and privileges, and to foster goodwill between the retired and active duty communities.

Organizers look forward to seeing you there.

Copies of the Soldier for Life Retiree Bulletins will be emailed and posted on Team Redstone website.

All retirees are encouraged to update their email address and phone number with the Defense Finance and Accounting Service to ensure delivery via email. DFAS will send the bulletins via email to retirees and annuitants who have provided an email.

If you have questions about your Tricare allotment or enrollment premium, contact Tricare. DFAS can only start, stop or change a Tricare allotment with direct instruction from Tricare.
