The Southern Colorado Military Retiree Assistance Office (RAO), formerly Retiree Activities Office, is sanctioned by the Air Force Chief of Staff under Air Force Instruction 36-3106, 30 June 2014. The purpose of the RAO is “…to serve military retirees, spouses, widows and widowers, and to support, advance and unify the retired and active military families.”. They are staffed by military retiree volunteers from all services and serve retirees and their families from all military branches. Assistance is provided to answer questions related to pay, legal, medical, IDs, and other areas of interest to military retirees and their families. We are continuing efforts to expand our email roster of retirees and surviving spouses because email is the most cost effective means of communication.
