Mary McDuffie’s Message to Members

While May is Military Appreciation Month for many, at Navy Federal Credit Union, we celebrate your service all year round.

Sacrifice and dedication are defining characteristics of your service to our nation. With that comes unique challenges for you, your spouses, partners and children—ones that many can never fully understand. That commitment doesn’t end when you take off your uniform, either. It continues for veterans and their families as well.

We know this because we’ve been there beside you all through the challenges and changes that come with serving. We’ve seen it before, but it never stops being special. Over the last 88 years, we’ve made it our mission to support you through your journey. Serving those who serve defines us and our approach, and it will be that way for as long as we exist.

So while appreciating our military is part of our daily work, we’re celebrating this May by offering exclusive features with your membership. It’s an honor to serve you—we’re grateful for all that you do.

This month, we’re also recognizing your service with a donation to Operation Homefront in honor of the numbers of years of service. Join in on the celebration by sharing photos on our site and on social media using #MissionMilitaryThanks.

It truly feels like we have a lot to celebrate. Society and business in general continues to recover as more people get vaccinated and as the weather improves, helping folks return to a sense of normalcy. We’re even seeing increases in spending on travel and services that were unavailable a year ago, both good signs for the months ahead. So while the economy will take time to come back to full strength and look somewhat different than before the pandemic, we can anticipate a robust recovery.

Through it all, know we’re always here for you, focused on how we can best serve your financial needs. Every day, we take time to appreciate all those who have served and commemorate those we’ve lost.  You're the core of our mission.
