Armed Forces Retirement Homes:
The Armed Forces Retirement Home (AFRH) is a Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC).
We are serving military retirees and qualified combat enlisted veterans with homes in Washington, D.C. and Gulfport, Mississippi.
Most of the 1,100 residents live independently but the institution provides a range of living arrangements consistent with CCRC’s including 2 levels of assisted living services and an extended care nursing home.
The average resident age is 79 and current residents have fought in wars from World War II to the Gulf War. This independent federal agency falls under the jurisdiction of the Secretary of Defense.
It is the only retirement home within the federal government.
When Congress created the institution in 1851 with war booty from the Mexican-American War, it was described as “an asylum for old and disabled veterans’’. At the time, military veterans received no pensions or benefits and many US veterans were impoverished and foreign-born, living an ocean away from their families with no one to care for them when they grew old, disabled or sick.
As the nature of the US military changed from a force dominated by draftees to an all voluntary military, Congress adjusted the AFRH management structure.
