Reginald Overholser

Veteran Service Director

Reg's journey is quite impressive, spanning both military and civilian aviation careers. His upbringing as an Army brat in Germany likely instilled a sense of adventure and discipline. Joining the Army to fund his college education shows his determination and practical mindset.

Transitioning from infantryman to helicopter pilot reflects his adaptability and ambition. Following in his father's footsteps by attending flight school at Ft. Rucker is a touching tribute to his family's legacy of service.

His dual roles as a helicopter pilot in the Army Reserves and a fixed-wing flight instructor demonstrate his commitment to honing his skills and gaining experience. The transition to civilian aviation with Air L.A and later United Airlines showcases his professionalism and dedication to his craft.

Reg's progression from flying Metroliner turboprops to captaining various Boeing aircraft at United Airlines highlights his expertise and versatility as a pilot. His retirement marks the culmination of a successful and fulfilling career in aviation. Reg's decision to join Veteran Alliance reflects his continued dedication to service even after retiring from United Airlines. His firsthand experience as a veteran and pilot uniquely positions him to understand the challenges facing his fellow veterans, especially in the transition to civilian healthcare.

By joining Veteran Alliance, Reg not only contributes his expertise in management but also brings a wealth of knowledge about military culture and the needs of veterans. His commitment to providing care and resources demonstrates his compassionate nature and desire to make a positive impact on the lives of others.

Reg's new role in Veteran Alliance allows him to channel his passion for helping others into meaningful work, where he can use his skills and experiences to support and uplift his fellow veterans. It's a wonderful way for him to continue serving his country and community even in retirement.
