Andrews Federal Credit Union, Suitland, Md., observed the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks with commemorative activities at branch locations in the U.S. and overseas.

In addition, the credit union made donations to three military organizations.

Andrews Federal decorated the entrances to each branch with American flags and handed out small flags to members. Employees wore special remembrance lapel pins to honor the civilians and first responders whose lives were tragically lost.

In addition, Andrews Federal made donations to the Warrior Transition Unit on Joint Base Andrews, the Warrior Transition Unit at Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst, and the Warrior Zone at Wiesbaden Air Base in Germany.

Sept. 11 “is a time to remember those who lost lives as well as to honor those who continue to fight for our freedoms every day,” says Chris McDonald, Andrews Federal president/CEO. “We are proud to be able to assist these organizations who work with service members of all branches of the military.”

Andrews Federal was founded in 1948 to serve the civilian personnel of Andrews Air Force Base. It serves more than 90,000 members in the District of Columbia, on Joint Base Andrews (MD) and Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst (NJ), in addition to members on military installations in central Germany, Belgium, and the Netherlands. It also serves select employee groups in Maryland and New Jersey.
