VIENNA, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Navy Federal Credit Union proudly recognizes Military Appreciation Month by honoring those who serve and their families. The credit union has special programs and offers for its members throughout the month of May. Share your message of appreciation on social media by using the hashtag #MissionMilitaryThanks.
“Military appreciation is what we’re built on at Navy Federal,” said Carrie Foran Sepulveda, vice president of membership at Navy Federal. “From our founding in 1933 to where we are today, military members and their families are at the heart of what we do. It’s an honor to serve these dedicated individuals each and every day. This May, we encourage all of our members to join us in celebrating Military Appreciation Month.”
Those who join in on the celebration online have a chance to win $1,000. To enter, participants should post a photo of themselves (or their favorite servicemember) holding a sign showing the number of years served in the military. Photos may be posted on social media and using #MissionMilitaryThanks, or directly through Navy Federal’s #MissionMilitaryThanks page anytime between May 1 and May 28. Ten entries will win $1,000.
For those who enter, Navy Federal is teaming up with Operation Homefront to pay it forward. The credit union is donating $5 for every year of service shared up to $50,000. The donations will go to Operation Homefront programs which help build strong, stable and secure military families so they can thrive – not simply struggle to get by – in the communities they have worked so hard to protect.
In addition to its celebration and giveback program, Navy Federal has member-exclusive offers available through the month.

- Refinance your current auto loan from another lender and get $200 credited to your account. Plus, enjoy a low monthly payment at today’s great rates.
- Open a new EasyStart or Special EasyStart Certificate and get a $30 bonus after you make 3 automatic transfers. Start with as little as $50 and watch your savings grow with an APY as high as 3.00%.
“This month is about those individuals and families who are committed to our country. Our commitment is to you,” added Foran Sepulveda.
“Navy Federal and Operation Homefront are both committed to helping build strong futures for those in the military community,” said Brig. Gen. (ret.) Robert Thomas, Chief Operating Officer of Operation Homefront. “We are grateful for this partnership that recognizes the courage and dedication of our active duty military, veterans and the families who serve beside them.”
Join both partners in saying thank you to servicemembers by submitting letters online. All letters will be distributed to servicemembers in your community throughout the year.
