Veterans Advantage and United Airlines Recognize Our Nation's Military and Veterans

Jeff Smisek, of United Airlines, poses for a picture with Veterans Advantage VP of Marketing, Roy Asfar

Longtime Veterans Advantage partner United Airlines hosted us recently for a stirring speech by its CEO, Jeff Smisek at the Wings Club, the prominent NYC-based aviation industry organization.

It was a packed house, and Jeff was surrounded by a terrific team representing United. As you know, United honors Veterans Advantage members with an exclusive discount of up to 5% every day. The company has a long history of strongly supporting those who serve. Through its pre-merger partner Continental Airlines, our partnership has been in place every day since 2004.

Smisek’s speech grabbed the attention of the several hundred industry executives attending the lunch. He was passionate in his defense of preserving American jobs in the face of unfair overseas competition from Gulf carriers.

Jeff took time out to chat with our Veterans Advantage Team. Our Vice President of Marketing, Roy Asfar (pictured with Jeff Smisek of United) expressed how very appreciative we are of our longstanding partnership that delivers tremendous travel benefits to military veterans and family members who are members of Veterans Advantage. In return, Jeff let Roy know that United is also deeply appreciative of what Veterans Advantage does to serve you. Thank you Jeff, and thank you United!

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.
