The Premier Retirement Community for America's Veteran's

Welcome to the Armed Forces Retirement Home, the oldest communities for Enlisted Veterans in the United States.

Did you enlist in one of the U. S. Armed Forces, or know someone who did?  Learn more about our communities in Washington DC and Gulfport MS that offer an activity-filled lifestyle in beautiful settings.  Come for a visit and consider requesting an application to live with others who have served.

Heritage and tradition run deep for us.  Learn more about our commitment to enlisted veterans since our origins in the 19th century.  Read about the heroes who have called AFRH home.

Help us preserve our premier retirement communities for enlisted veterans.  Consider volunteering at one of our campuses or making a donation to support our mission.

We are a unique institution:  an independent Federal agency designed to provide residences and healthcare to eligible veterans, yet our financial support is provided primarily by current service members and our residents rather than taxpayers.  Find out more about us and our "band of brothers" legacy.
