When I got my commission in 1968, the first thing I did was join USAA. It was a company founded and run by military members who understand the special needs of those of us who serve, especially when you are far from home and need a company who knows you like they were your home town. You are never a stranger to USAA.
I am retired in Germany now caring for my wife, and it is so reassuring to know that all my banking and insurance needs are covered with super rates and conditions, help is only a free call away to representatives who seem to genuinely care and make every effort to help no matter how long the call takes. Thank you USAA.
