My father, started the affiliation with USAA during his career as a US Naval Flight Surgeon, after 35 years of service he retired and when I bought my first car at age 17 I was carried on his policy. After my return from Vietnam with the US Marine Corps in 1969 I continued under his policy driving a 69 Pontiac Firebird. In 1970 I was insured with USAA-CIC until USAA accepted membership of enlisted and retired service members. My two daughters are eligible through my membership now but without my father's initial involvement would not know of their historical association. They are third generation and hopefully in 12 years my granddaughter will enter the USA family as fourth generation.
