The distinguished military veterans at the Armed Forces Retirement Home in Washington, D.C. make up a unique population of senior citizens, many of whom have served in WWII, Korea, Vietnam and the Gulf War. The Armed Forces Retirement Home has been home to thousands of former enlisted, warrant officers, and limited duty officers who have served around the world in all five branches of the United States Armed Forces. Together, their stories are testament to the sacrifices of service members everywhere.
With the average age being 82 to 85 years old, many of our residents are home-bound and seldom venture beyond the campus grounds. We rely a great deal on community support to fulfill our promise to our Veterans, so although our grounds are currently closed to the public, we encourage you to join us for an orientation session which will discuss the home’s history, the retired Veterans who live here, and our future volunteer opportunities. This orientation will cover a majority of the requirements to join us regularly at the AFRH.
