I first found USAA in 1996 as a College ROTC student at the University of Georgia. During a scholarship and grant search, I found out that USAA had some money available for future military officers. I wrote an essay and sent it to USAA. Soon after, a representative of USAA came to my Army ROTC department and presented me with a check and an engraved clock that is in my home office to this day. That was the beginning of what I plan to be a life long relationship with USAA.
