Veterans Day may be a few months away, but here at USAA we’ve already begun planning our tribute to the veterans in our lives. USAA members are invited to join our commemoration by submitting a photo and short tribute to their hero to be displayed on usaa.com.
A fun way to say ‘thank you’
We all know sometimes all it takes is a "thank you" to make someone’s day. Make your hero’s day by sending him or her a link to your usaa.com tribute on Nov. 11. The article can be shared in social media and will be displayed until Veterans Day 2015.
What it takes
- One photo of your hero. Portrait photos clearly showing the hero’s face are preferred. Due to Department of Defense regulations, we are not allowed to show photos of active-duty service members in uniform on our website. However, retired service members may be shown in uniform.
- Your tribute. In 100 words or less, tell us about your hero and why that person’s special.
- Signed release. To display your loved one’s photo, name and story on usaa.com, we’ll need his or her consent, in the form of a signed release. If your loved one is deceased, a release from the family member who has ownership of the deceased member’s estate will be needed. Additionally, if you would like to sign your name to your tribute, we’ll need your signed release. Download a release form below.
- Send em’ in. Email your Veterans Day tributes to Usaamagazine@usaa.com with ‘Veterans Day Tribute’ in the subject line.*
Veterans Day is Tuesday, Nov. 11.

We know what it means to serve
Our story is built on the values you live by. It began in 1922, when 25 Army officers agreed to insure each other’s vehicles when no one else would. Today we follow the same military values our founders prized: service, loyalty, honesty and integrity.
We hired more than 7,800 veterans and military spouses from 2008 to 2013.
*USAA reserves the right not to display any tributes for any reason. The last day to send in a submission is Sept. 26.
