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!

We will start announcing those in our next Benefits Alert and on our VeteransWeekNYC.org site.

Scott's View Military & Veterans News Scott's View: Remembering our TopVet Award Recipient; Veteran of the Year Award This week, I want to take a moment to remember a recipient of our TopVet Award for Bruce Whitman who recently passed away. Bruce was an Air Force Veteran and a great supporter of Veterans Advantage. It's been a bittersweet time for us, as we mourn his loss. In addition to his CEO position at Flight Safety International, Bruce was Chairman Emeritus of the Medal of Honor Foundation and served on the Metropolitan USO Board. We celebrate his lifelong commitment to veterans advocacy and know he will be missed dearly by all of us who are his fellow veterans, colleagues, and family.
