Send applications to: Department of the Navy, OPNAV N135C, Retired Affairs, 5720 Integrity Drive
Millington, TN 38055-6200. Selection is scheduled for October with appointment scheduled for December. For more information, contact Navy Retired Affairs toll-free at (866) 827-5672 or (901) 874-4308. Another way to assist the Naval retiree community is to volunteer at your local Retired Activities Offices (RAO). The Navy currently has 32 offices worldwide that are staffed by retiree volunteers. The Navy depends heavily on volunteers to run these offices. The volunteers are trained to assist other retirees, their families and survivors in receiving their earned benefits, aid family members when a retired service member dies, and plan and conduct annual Retiree Appreciation Days or Retiree Seminars. Most RAO volunteers spend a few hours a week in the office. If you are interested in being a volunteer, please contact your nearest RAO or call the Navy’s RAO program manager at (866) 827-5672 ext. 4308. [Source: Shift Colors Spring 2012 ++]
