Where did you serve and what did you do?
USN (retired). Served throughout the Pacific Fleet as a surface line officer. Shore tours include the CNO Office of Information Systems, and the Afloat Training Group, Yokosuka Japan.
How are you #StillServing?
I founded a Facebook group to help eligible retirees and their family members understand and access their Tricare benefits around the world. Using Tricare Overseas is complicated and perplexing; many who live or travel overseas just give up and either pay out of pocket or buy commercial policies. This is unnecessary! Your Tricare benefits follow you and your family members wherever you go around the world. We help you learn now.
Why do you do it?
This work is not-for-profit. Our site is not monetized and we do not profit from it in any way. Our focus is simply to help all Tricare users access the health benefits they were promised through a lifetime of service to our nation.
Any active duty member, retiree, eligible family member, or caregiver can join. We currently have nearly 3000 members sharing information on how to use Tricare benefits all over the world. Especially in this scary time of the global pandemic, we all need to understand how to quickly and easily access the health benefits to which we are entitled.
