Activities include a golf tournament, in-store sales at the main exchange and commissary, a retiree health and benefit expo, as well as bingo and bowling. Retirees also will be treated to VIP seats for the basic combat training graduation ceremony at Hilton Field. The guest speaker will be retired Maj. Gen. Abraham Turner, a former Fort Jackson commanding general.
