Mary McDuffie’s Message to Members

This time of year, we gather with our families and friends to reflect on what we’re thankful for. For those Active Duty members celebrating the holidays while deployed, we hope you can celebrate together with your family soon.

I’m thankful to you, our members, for the honor of serving you to the absolute best of our ability. I’m also thankful for our Active Duty members and our more than 1.9 million veteran members. Your service to our country continues to inspire our service to you each day.

I also join our entire team in thanks that Navy Federal continues to grow and to be recognized as the top-tier credit union to those who serve. has named us “The Credit Union for Military,” and Military Times and Forbes have listed us as one of the “Best Employers for Vets” in 2022. We’re truly honored to serve and employ our veterans.

We recently released our Best Cities After Service list. We asked veterans nationwide for their input on what helped them transition successfully from Active Duty to civilian life and compiled the top places out of their responses. We hope this list helps future military members when they’re transitioning out of service to veterans’ status.

Remember—we’re here for you, no matter what season of life you’re currently in, and I hope this holiday season brings you joy and good fortune.
