ALEXANDRIA, Va. (Nov. 8, 2019) – National Credit Union Administration Chairman Rodney E. Hood today issued a statement on the eve of the annual Veterans Day observance.
“Our veterans have served this country faithfully and well,” Chairman Hood said. “The men and women on active duty uphold that proud tradition. It, therefore, becomes our responsibility to support them. Abraham Lincoln once wrote, ‘Honor to the soldier and sailor everywhere . . . honor also to the citizen who cares for his brother in the field.’ Let us continue to prove worthy of that honor and provide care and support to those who serve.”
The NCUA offers information tailored for the needs of members of the military and their families (opens new window) on its consumer website, MyCreditUnion.gov (opens new window). Veterans currently make up 17 percent of NCUA’s total workforce and 8 percent of its senior staff. The NCUA also supports an employee resource group for veterans, Veterans at NCUA Serving, which provides an environment for veterans on staff to share experiences, build community, and foster professional development.
The NCUA’s offices will be closed on Monday, Nov. 11, in observance of the holiday.
