HILL AIR FORCE BASE, Utah -- Retirees and their families from all branches of the military and uniformed services are invited to a Retiree Appreciation Day from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Oct. 26 at The Landing (building 450).

The event gives the base and other agencies an opportunity to voice their gratitude for the dedicated service of the area’s approximately 22,000 military retiree population, and will provide information regarding current services, information, resources and benefits.

Scheduled to participate in this year’s program are the 75th Medical Group, TRICARE, Military Personnel Flight and a number of other veteran services agencies. In addition, the Davis County Health Department will offer flu, tetanus, pneumococcal, shingles, and COVID-19 vaccinations.

Local food truck vendors Dakine Grindz, Ogden Valley Smokehouse BBQ, and Wings on Wheels will be on site offering food and drinks for purchase from 11 a.m.-12:30 p.m.

A valid government-issued Common Access Card, Uniformed Services ID or sponsored visitor’s pass is required to access the base and attend the event. Face coverings will also be required due to the current Health Protection Condition on the installation.

Retiree Appreciation Day has been held annually at Hill AFB for more than decade. Last year’s in-person event was canceled because of the pandemic. Instead, resources, information and coupons to base stores that are normally offered to retirees at the event were posted online.
