Founders of the initiative also named Veterans Advantage’s VetRewards Card “The Official Card of Veterans Week NYC 2012” with access to thousands of veteran benefits and discounts across New York City’s Tri-State region and nationally.
“We are grateful to our partners in supporting free card distributions which provide access to our platform of benefits and discounts for Veterans Week NYC 2012,” said H. Scott Higgins, Veterans Advantage Founder and CEO, and a Vietnam Veteran.
