Veterans Day What does the military oath mean …
“I took the oath in the summer of ’98. The oath of office felt pretty weighty to me, as an 18-year-old kid … makes you realize you’re in a serious business all of a sudden, and folks are counting on you.” — Aaron
“The oath of commissioned officers is my promise to serve my country, take care of my soldiers and give them the very best of me. The oath is my promise of integrity and complete dedication to my duties.” — Kelly
“Boy, it’s been a long time since I said those words, but just thinking about it still raises the hair on the back of my neck. Mostly, I can remember being really excited. I was embarking on a new phase of my life and it was important, purposeful and full of meaning.” — JJ
Twenty-five Army officers came together and founded USAA to help each other when no one else would. We’ve remained true to that mission of serving the military community for more than 90 years.
We offer free guidance to the military community, and we provide advice and tools designed to help service members as they transition to civilian life.
We’re working hard to promote veterans hiring programs. In 2013, nearly 31% of our new hires were veterans or military spouses. We actively support efforts in other industries to make sure jobs are available for those who have served.
Today we salute the many men and women who have served our country, and we ask you to join us in making sure that every day is Veterans Day.
