DCUC releases special thank you video to honor veterans

Today we come together as brothers and sisters united by freedom, bound by history, humbled by sacrifice to say – thank you.

WASHINGTON, DC (November 8, 2021) — This Veterans Day, DCUC is honoring our military’s sacrifices with the release of a special video honoring our nation’s service members and veterans.

“This video is just a small way to say thank you to our veterans and service members,” said Anthony Hernandez, DCUC’s President/CEO. “Military life is like no other and the brave men and women of our armed forces make countless sacrifices each day for our nation. They choose to endure personal and family hardships while knowing that one day the ultimate sacrifice may be needed to protect our common ideals. For this willingness to serve, we are eternally grateful and proud to be able to make this small gesture of thanks.”

Every November 11th, the United States observes Veterans Day. Veterans Day is a day to honor those who have served our country in war and peace, whether dead or alive. It is a day where we as a nation are called upon to reflect on and remember the sacrifices made by our service members and veterans. It is thanks to these brave men and women that the rest of us can live our lives as free citizens in our great nation.

DCUC was founded to ensure our military members, veterans, and their families receive the best financial service in the finest traditions of the credit union philosophy. Each day, DCUC works to honor its mission of Serving Those Who Serve Our Country and do right by the men and women that have given so much of themselves to guarantee our freedom. This video is our message of gratitude for all they have given for our country.

DCUC invites its member credit unions to share the video with their memberships on their website, in their marketing, and in their branches as a way to say thank you to our service members and veterans.
