OCEANSIDE, Calif., April 23, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- GOBankingRates honors the collaborative efforts of its client, Pacific Marine Credit Union, and the Armed Forces Financial Network for their combined $3,000 donation to the Semper Fi Fund this April. As a personal finance and consumer banking site, GOBankingRates consistently recognizes the robust efforts of financial institutions to support the unique needs of their communities.
