Pacific Marine Credit Union supports new veteran outreach program onboard MCRD

OCEANSIDE, CA (December 30, 2016) — The Marine Corps Recruit Depot (MCRD) Museum Foundation and Command Museum have debuted the Veteran Outreach and Increased Community Engagement (VOICE) program to provide veterans, active duty, and their families with events, resources and services designed to reconnect them with their Marine Corps history, share experiences and provide networking opportunities. Pacific Marine Credit Union has become partners of the program, helping educate Marines and their families about financial education opportunities and resources available to them.

The VOICE program is held onboard MCRD at the Command Museum, a place that hundreds of thousands of Marines who attended boot camp at MCRD San Diego consider a home away from home and the museum as the steward of their experiences in the Marines, making it an ideal place to connect.

“It is such a natural fit for us to partner with the VOICE program,” says Pacific Marine Credit Union President/CEO, Bill Birnie. “Being the sole on-base financial institution for MCRD provides us with the opportunity and responsibility to be an integral part of the base’s financial education efforts, and this new program enhances our ability to reach out and do what we love- assist Marines and their families.”
