"There are not enough ways in the world to thank the men, women and families of those who serve in the armed forces," said Nancy DeDona, vice president, Membership. "For this week, we're putting a special spotlight on our military members to once again show our deep appreciation and respect."

DeDona stated that Military Appreciation Week will feature some outstanding offers on loans, certificates, credit cards, checking and member referral incentives. "Our Military Appreciation Week offers are valuable for members--they help our military families manage their finances and save."
