Positive volunteerism

The Retiree Activities Office exists to support, unite, and enhance the military retired, active duty and DOD civilian retiree communities through positive volunteerism.

All military retirees, regardless of service affiliation, DOD civilians, surviving spouses of retired and active duty personnel and all service members preparing to retire can ask and will receive assistance and guidance from the RAO.

The staff members are appointed by the Director and perform administrative duties in the RAO which is currently open by appointment only on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. The staff consists of four experienced members with a CAC and one member waiting on issuance of a CAC.

The CAC is significant in that one can access the government network, conduct research, and answer several emails daily when working in the RAO. To expand upon our capabilities to those we serve (over 2,500 in our footprint), we are searching the area for a few more dedicated volunteers. We need volunteers to fulfill and accomplish a myriad of duties as described above to serve others residing in the KMC, which reaches from Germesheim to Alzey, to Bad Kreuznach, Idar-Oberstein, Birkenfeld back to Zweibrücken, Homburg, Pirmasens, back to Landstuhl, Sembach and Ramstein.

So, look in the mirror and ask yourself, “Am I doing anything to help my community?” If you speak a little German that is a plus since some of our surviving spouses (believe it or not) do not speak much English. If you can commit yourself (dedication) and want to work (from the heart) one day a week (absent being sick and vacation times) then we need your services.

Can only work with serious and reliable volunteers? If you are seriously interested, send an email to: 86aw.rao@us.af.mil

One of the Counselors on duty will get back to you as soon as possible.
