VetFamily: Michael Jordan Military & Veterans Life VetFamily: Michael Jordan The grit. The discipline. The stamina.  These are part of what made Michael Jordan one of the best basketball players in history. But they’re also qualities of two of his family members who served in the military: James Jordan Sr., his father, in the Air Force, and James Jordan Jr., Michael’s older brother, in the Army. All three Jordans possessed the team loyalty and leadership capability required for a life in service on or off the court.
Scott Higgins Military & Veterans Life Scott's View: Mother’s Day Savings & Military Holidays During the COVID-19 Era Mother’s Day is one of the top restaurant days of the year.

However, in the face of COVID-19, the opposite is true -- millions of moms across the world are spending time alone. Thankfully Veterans Advantage has wonderful offerings from the 1800Flowers.com family of brands, and other retail brands, that enable you to touch the hearts of mom from a distance.

Scott's View Military & Veterans Life Scott's View: Iwo Jima and the Importance of Military History I was a history major in college, and like me, you may be fascinated by military history. Last week, we marked the 75th Anniversary of the Battle of Iwo Jima, one of the most important battles of World War II, memorialized in the iconic photo of our U.S. Marines planting the U.S. flag on Mount Suribachi. As we look back, we are reminded that time is running out for our World War II veterans. Please make the effort to seek out one in your community. Ask them about their service and thank them for helping to keep us free. You'll make their day!
