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.

It sets the stage for a weekend of “Welcome Home” tributes for a generation of war veterans that never received recognition for their service and sacrifice to our country, many of whom are still dealing with the aftershocks and consequences of that war.

Scott's View Military & Veterans Life Scott's View: What the Army Birthday and Flag Day Mean to Vets June is a busy time of year for so many of our members. This week, in particular, is a double-feature week. For starters, this week marks the 242nd anniversary of the United States Army which was established June 14, 1775. I am reminded of my own Army service during the Vietnam War, memories that rekindle the pride I felt serving our country. To our active duty currently in uniform and all the veterans who have served in the Army, we salute you. Happy Birthday to the U.S. Army! 
Scott's View Military & Veterans Life Scott's View: Memorial Day Reflections As the bombing in Manchester, England proved earlier this week, the peace and safety of a nation is precious and, many times, underappreciated... until they are gone. This Memorial Day weekend, we call on all our members to recognize and acknowledge those who have made the ultimate sacrifice to preserve the freedoms we enjoy today.  Take time this holiday weekend to reach out to the families you know who have lost loved ones in service to our country. They need to know that their service and sacrifice will never be forgotten and that we are eternally grateful to them.
