Retiree Newsletter Status

PPC is no longer publishing "The Retiree Newsletter".  The Retiree Services Program (COMDT-CG-13) has assumed this duty. CG-13 is employing the very same distribution lists PPC used to send out the newsletter.  So, as long as your mailing address is correct the Direct Access system, you will receive their version.  New retirees are automatically added to the distribution mailing list. There's no need to request to be added to the mailing list.

Reunion notices and other items of interest to the retiree community should be sent to the  Retiree Services Program (COMDT-CG-13):
