Retiree Activities - Volunteer Opportunities Abound!
Volunteers are needed! Service hours are flexible and can be served in several different venues at WPAFB. Volunteers can easily find a suitable "fit" for their interests or special skills. You can volunteer as little as a half day a week in one or more venues. RAO volunteers find their service is greatly appreciated and self fulfilling and easily make new friends.
Volunteers are always welcome to join the RAO team to work with other volunteers and active military and civilian personnel to provide assistance in solving personal problems. Volunteers should be retired military, dependents or survivors of military personnel and no less than 18 years old.
Volunteer opportunities currently exist in the following areas:
RAO Main Office, Suite 203, Building 2, Area C; RAO desk and Atrium at Wright-Patterson Medical Center; RAO Information Booth at the Commissary/BX; Medical Center; Kitty Hawk Pharmacy.
Assistance will be needed to plan and implement "Retirees Appreciation Day" in the fall.
Please contact us: For further information visit, call or mail the Retiree Activities Main Office at Suite 203, Building 2, Area C, Wright-Patterson AFB OH; telephone 937-257-3221.

Self addressed mail-in volunteer application forms are available at the RAO and Customer Service area in Building 2; the RAP desk in the Wright-Patterson Medical Center Atrium and the RAP Kiosk next to the Commissary entrance.
