Saturday, April 22 is Military Retiree Appreciation Day.

This event is the first of its kind here in Central Illinois. It will be held at the Itoo Hall in Peoria. Military Retiree Appreciation Day is a forum for retired and prospective retiree military members from all branches of service as well as families or spouses of retiree military members. There will be presentations by elected representatives and staff on legislation that may impact benefits and a discussion of legal issues. Participants can also update their administrative records and ID cards and health screening.
