Dear Colleague,

Please join us as cosponsors of H.Res. 782, our resolution supporting the goals and ideals of “Military Retiree Appreciation Day.”

When career military service members retire after twenty or more years and hang up their uniforms, many of them continue to serve their communities. They have critical roles in their local communities, governments and schools systems. No group better represents
the best qualities of citizenship and selflessness than military retirees.

This Resolution honors the prior and continued service of our military retirees by supporting the goals and ideals of a “Military Retiree Appreciation Day.” Military retirees display proven leadership and commitment to the principles that make our country
great, and they deserve this recognition from a grateful nation.

This resolution is supported by the American Military Retirees Association, Reserve Officers Association, Association of the United States Navy, American Retirees Association, Military Order of World Wars, the Flag and General Officers Network, and
the Retired Enlisted Association.

If you would like to support this resolution or require more information, please contact Adam Sperry with Congresswoman Stefanik at, or Michael Calcagni with Congressman Bishop at
