Scott Higgins, founder and CEO of Veterans Advantage, and a Vietnam War Veteran. “Extended Stay America savings are a great benefit for our members who are vacationing with family, business travelers, or perhaps visiting an active duty family member and are seeking affordable lodging near a military base.”

The VetRewards Card from Veterans Advantage is accepted nationally by travel industry leaders and top retailers for military savings. In addition to Extended Stay America, other key Veterans Advantage benefit partners include United Airlines, JetBlue Airways, Greyhound, Avis/Budget, Ford & Lincoln Motor Cars, CVS/pharmacy, Dell, Apple, Verizon Wireless & Verizon Fios, among others.

Military & Veterans Life

Cover Story: How & Why WeSalute Was Founded 25 Years Ago

WeSalute founders Scott and Lin Higgins have spent a lifetime in the military community, from Scott’s combat service in Vietnam and the service of Lin’s father in WWII, to serving families and veterans through the creation of memorials and parades as part of charitable and government initiatives. It was this lifetime of service that led them to establish WeSalute, originally founded as Veterans Advantage, and to continue giving back.
