All - With all of the holiday rush activities, Ward and I are considering moving our Christmas Dinner to January 13th or skipping it this year and plan on it for the second Wednesday on December 2016.

I think we could have a nice celebration in January, after all of the holiday rush calms down.

Send me an email or post your comments here.

One of our members had a recent experience when visiting wounded warriors. He shared that it was very humbling to visit these soldiers that gave so much.

When I asked how to help, he said that the Fisher House Foundation is a great organization that helps with the families.

General information

RTUs provide training opportunities for IRR/IMA soldiers to earn retirement points to achieve creditable years of service towards retirement at age 60. With a 50-point minimum needed to earn a creditable year, RTU soldiers can augment their yearly retirement point totals by performing non-paid drills or RSTs. With 15 points awarded to all Army Reserve soldiers for membership, a combination of additional active duty days for training and non-paid drills may allow RTU soldiers to achieve their 50-point minimum (90-point maximum) for a creditable year of service toward retirement. For more information on earning retirement points in an RTU, reference AR 140-185.
