News from our Partners: Tony Langdon, Retired SFC E-7, U.S. Army, on Living at the Armed Forces Retirement Home in Gulfport, Mississippi

I arrived at the Armed Forces Retirement Home in Gulfport, Mississippi (AFRH-G) in April 2012. It seemed like I was walking into a five-star resort community, combined with the beautiful setting of the Gulf of Mexico beach.

I enjoy living the carefree lifestyle at AFRH-G. There is no comparing what we have here to other retirement homes: the amazing resort-like lifestyle, along with good friendship and socializing.

We have everything from the fitness center, and meals and transportation, to activities that are offered. I also enjoy freedom without all the worries associated with home ownership. I have peace of mind knowing I have assisted and full-time care if needed. I even have an enjoyable view from my balcony when I have coffee in the morning!

I feel safe being alone and thoroughly enjoy the peace of mind that comes from access to medical care, which includes three pull cords in each apartment. These emergency pull cords provide a quick medical response from our security officers with any emergency that may occur day or night. There is also a gate guard for controlled access onto the property.

There are a lot of fun things for residents to do on the Gulf Coast. People are very friendly and helpful, giving you the feeling that you’re always welcome. There are a variety of restaurants, shopping malls, golf courses, great fishing spots, and plenty of live entertainment at the local casinos. The AFRH-G also has a parking garage for vehicles.

The 50 cents per month I paid to support the AFRH while on active duty was an excellent investment for my future retirement!
