Now in its 25th year, the Dietrich Memorial Scholarship honors former USBA Executive Director and President, the late Maj Gen William A. Dietrich, USAF (Ret.). It’s awarded annually to at least one graduating high school senior who is an eligible child or grandchild of a USBA member. The member can be on active duty, retired or separated from the military service, any branch.
2014 William A. Dietrich Memorial Scholarship recipients were Andrew Hurst, grandson of Norman Beesley, Commander in the U.S. Navy and USBA member since 1972; and Brianne Hoglin, granddaughter of Richard Hoglin, Major in the U.S. Air Force and USBA member since 1989.
With college on the horizon for someone in your family, now’s a good time to review your life insurance coverage and make sure it’s enough to protect your family’s financial future. USBA offers military life insurance coverage that fits the unique needs of those serving in, transitioning out of and retired from the military service.
