Memorials Abroad Military & Veterans News Cover Story: Memorials Abroad This year’s Memorial Day will be celebrated in the United States with solemn ceremonies marked by recognition of the sacrifices of American women and men in uniform at innumerable memorials located throughout the country.  These memorials are everyday reminders which really only come into sharp focus, however, on that one special day at the end of May.  Less in one’s consciousness, if indeed one is even aware of them, are the many memorials to deceased American service members in foreign countries which deserve attention.
Scott Military & Veterans Life Scott's View: Remember the Medal of Honor This week’s “National Medal of Honor Day” was created to “foster public appreciation and recognition of Medal of Honor Recipients.” As a board member of the Congressional Medal of Honor Foundation, this day holds special meaning for me. It is our nation’s highest military honor and represents the six values of courage, sacrifice, patriotism, citizenship, integrity, and commitment. David Semour, a West Point graduate, Army veteran, chief operating officer of American Airlines and a partner of Veterans Advantage, leads the Foundation as its Chairman.
Scott Discounts & Benefits Scott’s View: Women’s History Month & the Coronavirus Anniversary We hope you enjoy this week’s HeroVet in recognition of Women’s History Month. The remarkable story about the Navy’s Julia Parsons, who just turned 100, is about the humility women like Julia had to demonstrate while serving our country during World War II. She served as a code-breaker, and no doubt saved countless American lives. But her role was top secret for 50 years. Today, we want to give her a long-overdue “thank you” for her tremendous service to our country.
