Video Transcript for Veterans Bond: Scuba
ONSCREEN TEXT: These two Navy Federal Credit Union members have never met. But they share more than just a credit union.
ONSCREEN TEXT: Ben Payano, Marine Veteran
BEN PAYANO: I knew that a career in the armed forces would be for me. It requires you to be present at all times. I take that very seriously.
ONSCREEN TEXT: Karen Kohanowich, Navy Veterans
KAREN KOHANOWICH: I wanted to get to a good four-year college that was away from home, get out, start seeing the world. And Navy opportunities seem like the best way for the whole package.
BEN PAYANO: Karen?
KAREN KOHANOWICH: Hey, you must be Ben.
BEN PAYANO: Hey, nice to meet you.
KAREN KOHANOWICH: Outstanding. Good to meet you too.
BEN PAYANO: Good to meet you. Let's do this. Nice boat.
KAREN KOHANOWICH: Yeah, you like this thing? It's my new baby.
KAREN KOHANOWICH: When you meet someone else who's been in the service, there's an underlying bond of understanding. You know what it's like to pack up and move every 2 to 3 years. You know what it's like to say goodbye to your family, and be gone for six or seven months at a time.
BEN PAYANO: My first dive at sea, I was experiencing this crazy amount of waves hitting the boat and everything. But nonetheless, I had a good time.
KAREN KOHANOWICH: Once you have your buoyancy so that you're floating, you're not fighting to stay up, and not fighting stay down, you can really get to almost a meditative state.
BEN PAYANO: Navy Federal help me navigate through a lot of things that life put in front of me.
KAREN KOHANOWICH: From an early age, Navy Federal has really helped me be smart with my money, from being able to save for my 1st bicycle to being able to refinance the present home that I live in.
BEN PAYANO: I just feel like there's something so powerful about being a part of that financial community.
