Navy Federal Credit Union Puts Spotlight on Veterans and Military Family Appreciation
VIENNA, Va. (November 4, 2021) – In honor of November being Veterans and Military Families Month, Navy Federal Credit Union is on a mission to celebrate the inspiring service of veterans and their families. Along with always having access to the credit union’s great rates and product offers, Navy Federal’s force of nearly 11 million members will have the opportunity to get involved by showing appreciation and giving back to veterans.
Running through Nov. 14, the credit union is hosting a #GratitudeMission contest to honor veterans. Participants will need to post a photo on social media using the hashtag or submit online at gratitudemission.navyfederal.org to be entered to win several prizes, one of them being a donation in honor of their veteran to the nonprofit, U.S.VETS.*
“Nearly 250,000 servicemembers leave active duty each year. This transition can be challenging for veterans and their families, which is why we’re committed to providing useful resources and meaningful support,” said Vice President of Membership at Navy Federal, Carrie Foran Sepulveda. “We’re proudly partnering with U.S.VETS, as we have for over a decade, to celebrate, honor, and support our veterans.”
For nearly a decade, Navy Federal's branch teams across the country have supported U.S.VETS in its focus on workforce development, ending veteran homelessness, mental health and wellness, and individualized support to help veterans rebuild and thrive.
"We're both on a mission to take care of veterans and their families who have sacrificed so much for our country," said Steve Peck, a Marine Corps veteran and President and CEO, U.S.VETS. "Navy Federal Credit Union understands that every veteran deserves to live with dignity and independence, and because of their support we continue to provide vital services to help lift up veterans and get them the resources they need the most."
