April 7, 2011
FORT JACKSON, S.C. -- Two of Fort Jackson's annual events, Retiree Appreciation Days and Armed Forces Day, have been combined into one big event set to begin with a golf tournament here May 20, event coordinators said.
Al Brackett, post retirement services officer, said combining the two celebrations should make the two-day event even more enjoyable for the attendees.
In the past, Retiree Appreciation Days events have been held in April.
The combined Retiree Appreciation/Armed Forces Day event will include a number of staples from previous years, such as a golf tournament, dinner and health and benefits expo. Static displays will also be exhibited in honor of Armed Forces Day.
This year, the Retiree Appreciation and Armed Forces Day opening ceremonies will be combined, and the ceremony is scheduled for 9 a.m., May 21, at Hilton Field.
