I was on active duty in 1958 at Ft. Belvoir, VA, in the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. My auto insurance with an expensive New England Insurance Company was due for renewal. I saw an advertisement for USAA Insurance. I sent for information and I qualified. My premiums would drop dramatically. I signed up and increased my hazard allowances. I could now afford the insurance coverage on my Army pay and later on my salary as an advanced degree college graduate student. I am a 53 year subscriber and proud to be a USAA member.
