Andrews FCU provides steaks to D-Day vets

To commemorate the 70th anniversary of D-Day, the Suitland, Md.,-based credit union delivered the meals with the help of Steak Team Mission, which has served more than 50,000 steaks to servicemembers across the globe since 2002.

Meals were served to the veterans and their family members at the Château Bernaville in Picauville, the home of the Allied Conservatory Foundation in Normandy, France.

The Château also served as headquarters for the German General Wilhelm Falley, who was in command of the German defenses stationed at the Cotentin Peninsula. Falley was ambushed and killed there by troops from the U.S. 82nd Airborne Division.

Founded in 1948 to serve military and civilian personnel, Andrews provides an array of financial products and services to its members.

The $1 billion-asset credit union serves more than 100,000 members spanning the District of Columbia, Joint Base Andrews in Maryland, Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst in New Jersey, and military installments in Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands.
