Message to Capitol Hill: Investing in our Veterans
Posted November 13, 2019 by CUNA Advocacy

CUNA marked Veterans Day this week with a communication sent to all 535 congressional offices highlighting the credit union commitment to serving military veterans and their families.  The entire message is included below.


Hello, 

For the men and women returning to civilian life after serving our country, America’s credit unions are committed to investing in their financial health. 

Whether investing in veteran-owned small businesses or in veteran employees, we recognize that those who’ve served are some of the strongest members of our communities; as member-owned financial cooperatives, having strong members like our nation’s veterans makes our movement and our mission to serve and uplift that much sturdier. 

Thank you for helping us continue to invest in our veterans’ financial wellness, and in your community’s financial health. 

With gratitude, 

Ryan Donovan
