CAP COM Opens Nominations For Military Flights Home



CAP COM Federal Credit Union is “reuniting hearts” this Veterans Day with its Reunite Flight program. The program was founded to help active-duty military personnel travel to be with their families when it otherwise might not be financially possible. This is CAP COM’s newest initiative to recognize and thank active-duty service members for all they do to protect and serve our country.

This is the program’s second year. In its first year, CAP COM awarded Ethan Martinez, stationed in the Army in North Carolina, and Grady Ellis, stationed in the Navy in Texas, roundtrip airfare home to visit their loved ones.

“Thank you to the CAP COM family and the community for allowing me the opportunity to visit my family. Any time I get to see my family, holiday or not, it is always special. It means so much to me to have such caring individuals give their support to soldiers. We could not do what we do without support from people like you,” said Ethan Martinez, Reunite Flights recipient, 2016.

Members of the credit union can nominate active-duty members of the military they feel deserve a Reunite Flight by visiting www.capcomfcu.org/reunite. A committee consisting of representatives from the VFW, American Legion and West Point will choose two deserving recipients from those nominated. These recipients will receive free, round-trip airfare to visit their family over the next year. Nominations are open until October 31. Winners will be announced on Veterans Day, November 11.
