Guam - A Retiree Appreciation Day was held today at Andersen Air Force Base, offering military retirees and their families a chance to learn current information about topics such as benefits, entitlements, health care and special services available for them. Lieutenant Colonel Brian Hinsvark says it's also an opportunity to personally thank the retirees.

"Thank you for your service...really appreciate everything that you have done to basically set up everything that we serve with today, the airmen that are part of my unit are part of their legacy and we do this out of honor, we do this out of respect," he said.

Thomas Casey from Korea served in the U.S. Army for 23 years and says all retirees should attend events like these. "I think with the retirees, it's important they keep updated on what's going on from the commander of the base, who is the general here and same in korea. The colonels have meetings and tell the retirees base changes, base operations, things they can improve the base with," he explained.
