Armed Forces Retirement Home update and Guard availability

Please see attached memo from MG(R) Stephen Rippe regarding the availability
to Enlisted Guardsmen of the use of the Armed Forces Retirement Home. I have
visited this facility and it provides a wonderful benefit to our enlisted
men and women who have a need.

I am also pleased to relay that MG(R) Rippe and his team are working
aggressively to change the eligibility requirements by proposing legislation
that would make the use of this facility available to all retirement
eligible Guardsmen and Reservists (to include grey area retirees without
regard to title).
