Links to Freedom receives $3,000 from Belvoir Federal and AFFN

WOODBRIDGE, VA (April 28, 2016) — Belvoir Federal Credit Union awarded Links to Freedom with a matching grant check of $3,000 on behalf of the credit union and the Armed Forces Financial Network (AFFN).

Over the past two decades, AFFN has proudly supported AFFN participating Association of Military Banks of America (AMBA) Banks and Defense Credit Union Council (DCUC) Credit Unions in their mission to support the troops, their families, and the U.S. Military and Defense Communities worldwide.

LT Colonel Rob Koon, President and CEO of Links to Freedom, stated, “Links to Freedom could not provide our rehabilitative and adaptive golf program for wounded, ill, and injured troops and their families without the amazing support of Belvoir Federal Credit Union (soon to be Pentagon Federal). Belvoir Federal continues to be a great partner helping Links to Freedom serve those that have sacrificed much for our country, and together, we are helping link hundreds of lives to the freedom rehabilitative and adaptive golf provides.”

“We were honored to support Links to Freedom in their efforts to help the wounded warriors. Belvoir Federal has always supported the efforts of our community on Fort Belvoir and we will continue to do so as we partner with PenFed CU in the coming days,” stated Sharon Leake, Belvoir Federal’s Installation Liaison and Membership Development Officer.
