CAP COM Opens Nominations For Military To Fly Home



CAP COM Federal Credit Union, in partnership with Verizon, 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 program is a way for CAP COM to recognize and thank service members for all they do to protect and serve our country. Nominations open Tuesday September 11 and close Wednesday, October 31.

This is the program’s third year. With support from Verizon, CAP COM will award four people the round-trip airfare home to see their loved ones.

A 2016 recipient, Grady Ellis, of the Navy commented, “This means a lot, thank you CAP COM for your support of the U.S. military. Also thank you to the other men and women, that currently serve and have served our country. With this opportunity I look forward to being able to spend time with my family and friends.”

“The Reunite Flights program is a wonderful way to thank our service personnel with the gift of family,” noted Amanda Goyer, CAP COM Federal Credit Union’s Community Relations Manager. “CAP COM is built on the foundation of people helping people and strives to nurture the community in support of families.”

“Verizon is thrilled to partner with CAP COM on granting Reunite Flights,” said Chip Lawrence, CAP COM board member and Senior Manager at Verizon. “Recognizing our U.S. military is very important to us. Letting those personnel spend time with their families and friends is one of the most rewarding projects we participate in.”

Members of CAP COM 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 with military backgrounds will choose four recipients from those nominated. Recipients will receive free, round-trip airfare to visit their family over the next year. Nominations are open through October 31, 2018. Winners will be announced on Veterans Day, November 11, 2018.
