Brokers Insurance Agency ( is celebrating 28 years as a proud, local, veteran-owned insurance agency. Veteran Ken Richards joined the Army in April 1988 and after basic training at Fort Benning, GA, he was stationed at The National Training Center at Fort Irwin, CA. Ken was 11H Infantry Tow Gunner with the 1st of the 52nd Infantry Regiment where they were part of the Opposition Force (OPFOR) 177th Armored Brigade.

Ken followed in the footsteps of his father and grandfather who also served in the U.S. Army making him a third generation Veteran. All the generations of Richards served at different times in U.S. History, and each one was honored to serve our great nation.

“Friday, November 11, is Veterans Day and a wonderful opportunity to thank a veteran,” said Ken. “As a business, we never take for granted the freedoms afforded to us by the brave men and women who have served the greatest country known to mankind. We are proud to be Americans, proud of our Armed Forces, and proud of each and every Veteran who served. So from all of us here at Brokers Insurance Agency—Cari, Nicole, Mickena, Chris, and myself—thank you, Veterans!”

Ken started his own insurance agency in 1994 selling life, health, and investments. In 2005, the Brokers Insurance Agency added property and casualty insurance in order to offer clients more complete layers of protection for both insurance and financial services. Ken’s extensive knowledge and experience in the insurance industry allows the team to build long-lasting relationships with their clients in the community. Learn more at or call (402) 420-5353.
