My husband Scott flew AH64 Apache for the 8/229th. He was stationed out of Ft. Knox. He loved flying more than anything! He was just like a child when telling someone exactly what that machine could actually do!
Terrible events in our lives such as sickness and death are things that happen to other people...not our family. But it did! I do not remember much about that time, just that some officials, all friends, came to our home and my Scott was gone! Thank God that Scott was always aware, especially since being called back to active duty to deploy to Iraq, of the importance of having life insurance.
Our future, especially that of our children, was always a concern for us. AAFMAA was very helpful and quickly provided us with what we needed. If I remember correctly my brother handled most of the work for me, but there really wasn't that much. It was such a relief to not have to worry about finances during such a terrible and heartbreaking time in our lives. I am not sure what my children and I would have done without it. No one ever wants to plan for tragedy, but my family learned first-hand that it is so worth it to plan and prepare to take care of your family and loved ones just in case!
Thank you again!

I wanted to let you know how grateful I am to you personally, and to AAFMAA in general, for the incredibly efficient and kind support you have given me at this terribly sad time. Everyone has been so helpful and patient with me; Paula, Sarah as well as Sherry and Melaney.
Each person helped me so very much, at a time in my life where I was incapable of handling my own affairs and needed help, which was given generously and pleasantly. It is wonderful to find that there are people in this world that are so nice to others in need.
Thank you all from the bottom of my heart,
