My father served in WW II, flying transports over "the hump" in China. One of the best things he did for me was introduce me to USAA, and this was back when only officers and their dependents qualified. I later served during Vietnam, but as an enlisted man in the USAF. Dad retired as a Colonel, I served as a Sergeant (then went back to college on the GI Bill), and my children now are members without having served. I appreciate USAA extending its membership opportunities beyond the initial Officer class - anybody who serves deserves the benefits of this fine organization.
