I was an Air Force air crew on the B-52.
My headquarters was in Andersen Field, Guam.
Destroyer; Navy; Vietnam.
One of our Vietnam veterans.
In Desert Storm, I was Army.
I was search and recovery.
It’s nice to be with brothers and sisters.
This is the 118th National Convention of the Veterans of Foreign Wars, the United States and our auxiliary.
We’re here at the convention center in New Orleans.
Humana is a proud partner of the VFW and glad to be a part of the convention, glad to support veterans and their spouses and families.
We have two footprints today. We have one where we educate veterans to their benefits and talk to them about how Medicare can support them.
Oh, absolutely I’m a Humana member.
And then, we’re also part of the health fair.
And you’re here for a health screening? Having somebody that understands some of those unique, especially those unique health challenges that veterans face, like Humana does, is a great service that we’re very appreciative of.
Humana likes to keeps you active. They offer us this program called SilverSneakers.
Reach and pull.
We really appreciate what Humana does for us.
But, you have to stay active. If you don’t stay active, you’re going to be sick, you’re going to be home-bound and you don’t want to be home-bound.
The way Humana associates love to volunteer to help veterans is heartwarming and it makes me proud.
I’m most proud of the fact that I defended the country for 20 years as a naval veteran.
Humana is not only providing education and health screenings here at the convention.
We’re also honoring Vietnam veterans.
There were no parades, no bands playing, but I knew where I’d been and I knew how I’d changed.
It never ceases to amaze us some of the sacrifices and some of the things that people have done to keep this country free.
A grateful nation thanks and honors you.
I hadn’t been presented anything in 40 years.
So, it’s more than a pin.
Thank you. Thank you.
Thank you for your service and welcome home officially.
