    The 1991 Defense Authorization Act, Public Law 101-510, created an 
Armed Forces Retirement Home Trust Fund to finance the United States 
Soldiers' and Airmen's Home and the United States Naval Home. The homes, 
which are currently in operation, are financed by appropriations drawn 
from the trust fund. The homes are administered by directors appointed 
by the Secretary of Defense with oversight provided by the Armed Forces 
Retirement Home Board. The Sheridan dormitory will be renovated in 1998. 
Also, a 110-bed medical facility will be designed in 1998.

    The Armed Forces Retirement Home provides medical and domiciliary 
care and other authorized benefits for the relief and support of certain 
retired military personnel of the Armed Forces.
