American Eagle Financial Credit Union continues its support of veterans by announcing a month-long celebration of veterans, their families, and the organizations that support them. Rather than celebrate just one day, we’ve dedicated an entire month to honor the men and women who have served our country.
AEFCU’s Veterans Month in November will honor the men and women who have served our country with an American Eagle Honor Roll of Veterans to be displayed on this web page. We’re enlisting your help. Members are invited to submit names of individuals (living or deceased) who served in the Air Force, Army, Coast Guard, Marines, or Navy. These names will appear on AEFCU’s Honor Roll of Veterans throughout November in appreciation for their service.
$5,000 in grants to be awarded to local veterans' organizations
Additionally, AEFCU will award a total of $5,000 in grants from its Donor-Advised Fund at the Hartford Foundation for Public Giving to organizations that support veterans. Each Monday in November, AEFCU will announce a $1,000 grant to a different veterans' organization as chosen by a group of AEFCU employees. Check back to this web page during November to learn about the five grant recipients.
“We can never say thank you enough to the men and women who fought for and protected our country throughout the years. But, by sharing our gratitude and appreciation over an entire month, including the traditional November 11 Veterans Day celebration, we hope to show that we will always remember and honor their service,” said Dean Marchessault, President & CEO of American Eagle Financial Credit Union. “Our month-long program was spearheaded by the employees of AEFCU who will help build the American Eagle Honor Roll of Veterans and decide the recipients of our weekly donations to veterans’ organizations. This was truly a labor of love for all.”
