Air Force Retiree Activities Program
The mission of the Retiree Activities Office is to provide a continuous update of information helpful to the Air Force retirees who reside in our assigned area of responsibility. Further, to mobilize retirees and provide volunteer assistance to active duty organizations that require such help. To also provide assistance to those retirees in need by staffing a Retiree Activities Office with volunteer retirees who are capable of responding to questions posed by retirees and their dependents on a daily basis.

Retirees with questions regarding identification cards, call the appointment line at (707) 424-3409. Retirees must contact the MPS to schedule an appointment and to verify information needed to process ID requests.

For ID card appointments verify correct forms of identification accepted.

tabSurviving Spouse 
The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs has created a new internet web site for the surviving spouses and dependents of military personnel who died on active duty and for the survivors and dependents of veterans who died after leaving the military.

The site is organized into two broad categories -- death in service and death after service. It provides visitors with information about a wide range of benefits for the surviving spouse, dependent children, and dependent parents of deceased veterans and active-duty personnel.

The site also has information from, and links to, other federal agencies and organizations offering benefits and services to survivors and dependents. There is even a link to Frequently Asked Questions to answer most of your questions or concerns, including how to contact the VA directly.

The site can be found at or by clicking the "Survivors Benefits" button on the left panel of
