My Dad was in the Army during Vietnam, I don't know his story about coming to USAA because he died before I became interested in those kinds of facts, but both him and my mother always told me to stay with USAA, so i did. Then I married a soldier during OIF and USAA has been there for us with insurance and advice, expecially since we have been here in Germany. Will never change our insurance and only plan on financing our first home when we are out through USAA. They have never steered us in the wrong direction and cannot get better rates through anyone else Thanks USAA!!
