Scott Higins Military & Veterans Life Scott's View: Darryl Hammond’s Story Reminds us to Take Care of our Military Families This week’s VetFamily profile of Darryl Hammond is a somber reminder of the silent casualties of war. The son of a World War II veteran, his childhood was haunted by the repercussions of dad’s PTSD that was not properly addressed. And while Hammond became a successful comedian and Saturday Night Live entertainer, he never quite escaped the chilling reminders of his youth. The good news is that he ultimately found closure and recovery after his father’s death. His story is a vivid reminder that we as a country and as individuals have a sacred obligation to address the silent illnesses of war, and find and provide the care and therapies for those in need, our military and veterans and their families.
Scott's View Military & Veterans Life Scott’s View: Your Best Time to Save is Now With summer 2020 in full swing, this is a great time to enjoy VetRewards savings. The safest environment from coronavirus, when social distancing, is outdoors instead of indoors -- and the warm temperatures make it easy to do that. Secondly, we hope you can focus on self-care and take some vacation time for you and your family! We have many ways to travel, including car rentals, if this is the year you take that often-talked-about road trip.
scott higins Military & Veterans Life Benefits Update: Save on Summer Essentials for Healthy Summer Fun Lin and I just completed a cross-country drive over the past weekend to the northern woods of Michigan for a stay at our family summer cabin. During the drive, we were continually struck by the beauty of our amazing country, and in celebrating our nation’s 244th birthday last Saturday, we consider how fortunate we are to live here. We hope this past holiday weekend was similarly important to you. Thank you for your and your family’s service to the country and for preserving the freedoms we hold so dearly. 
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.
