WOODBRIDGE, VA. (7/29/14)--In July, Belvoir FCU, Woodbridge, Va., with $313 million in assets, revamped the checking account it offers to active duty military members, and in one month achieved a 23% growth rate on the product.

The newly named Armed Forces Checking account is open to active duty military, reservists and National Guard members.
"Belvoir Federal believes in financial readiness for our military members," said Patricia Kimmel, Belvoir FCU president/CEO. "It is our duty to serve these men and women as they serve our country.
