In 1966,only military officers and gov't service officers qualified for USAA. I was at Ft.Benning,Ga. I was a senior candidate in Infantry OCS class 13-66 and was informed I would be graduating 22sept66 after 6 months of hard training to become a commisioned 2Lt. many of us double timed it down to Columbus to buy a new car. I chose a '66 GTO and was told I would qualify for USAA insurance. I said great just get me burning rubber asap.I've been a member to date.
