Keesler Holds Military Retiree Appreciation Day
Hundreds attended Friday’s event, which gave retirees a chance to better understand their financial and healthcare benefits. Retirees were offered free flu shots and blood pressure tests as well. There was also a guest speaker, who spoke on the importance of honoring service men and women.
Sgt. Ivan McAllister, a veteran, says, “Many of the retirees from the military have been in combat. They have been out there doing what our troops are doing now. It’s appropriate that the base does honor our retiring military population.”
