This web site is committed to the preservation and improvement of the ENLISTED LANDS & RETIREMENT HOMES for current and future enlisted members of the U. S. Armed Forces. It is supported by the residents of the home under the name Enlisted Lands Organization!
The ENLISTEDLANDS.Org is not the official website for the Armed Forces Retirement Home.

Step 1: Do You Qualify?First things first…We have to make sure you qualify for the homes! We would hate for you to learn all about our wonderful retirement homes only to find out that you do not qualify.

The Veterans Retirement Home provides eligible veterans with supportive care and shared camaraderie.

Just like you experienced in your service days.

Back then you invested in the Veterans Retirement Home via small payroll deductions. Now it’s time for you to get back what you earned from Uncle Sam: an affordable, comfortable, and secure retirement.

If advanced care is needed later, three levels of skilled nursing are available for a little more per month.

Specifically, you must be eligible for admission according to the law established the AFRH below.

General Requirements

The AFRH provides eligible veterans with supportive care and shared camaraderie. Just like you experienced in your service days. Back then you invested in the AFRH via small payroll deductions. Now it’s time for you to get back what you earned from Uncle Sam: an affordable, comfortable, and secure retirement.

To live at the AFRH, you must be able to live independently upon admission. This means you must be able to care for your personal needs, attend a dining facility for meals, and keep all medical appointments. You must not have a felony conviction. And you must be free of active drug, alcohol, and psychiatric problems. For those admitted to live independently, AFRH offers three levels of advanced care later on if needed:  assisted living, long-term care, and memory support.

Legal Requirements

Specifically, you must be eligible for admission according to the law that established the AFRH. Married couples are welcome, but spouses must meet certain eligibility requirements.  Please call 228-897-4429, for details.
