“This event seeks to expand communications with the retired members in our community, as well as their families and surviving spouses,” said retired Army Col. Felix L. Santiago, JBSA Retired Military Members Council Co-Chair. “Questions can also be submitted after the event, as JBSA leaders look forward to addressing any concerns or feedback as to issues affecting the military retired member community.”

While pre-registration is required for in-person attendance and is limited to 150, the town hall will be broadcasted live on JBSA Facebook page at There are still plenty of spots for in-person attendance.
