Retiree Activities Office

Your Retiree Activities Office (RAO) is the base level component (72nd ABW/CVR) of the Air Force Retiree Council. We are a liaison between the active duty elements and the retiree community at Tinker Air Force Base. The RAO is located in Bldg. 1, Door 7, Room 153 and is manned by experienced military retiree members Monday - Friday from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. Our phone number is 739-2795 and we can be reached by email at or

The RAO director is retired Chief Master Sgt. Lorraine Caddy and the office manager is retired Master Sgt. Charles Lindley. Our office is here to serve every retiree when they need guidance or assitance. We also provide volunteers to active duty areas needing help. We currently have volunteers working in the DEERS/ID office, RAO office, Tinker Clinic Pharmacy, Tinker Clinic Welcome Desk and Space A Travel.

Come and meet some of our members on the First Thursday of each month (if a holiday doesn't interfere) at the Tinker Club, where we hold the monthly retiree meeting at 11:30 a.m. We hope to see you and your spouse in attendance very soon.
