Bank - Full-Serivce - Military

"We're proud of our ongoing commitment to the military communities we serve - working with leaders, officials, and employees to strengthen families, the economy, and create opportunities that make a difference."

Paul Holewinski, CEO

"With Armed Forces Bank, we have expanded our efforts with 'Send a Letter' drop boxes in their branches. A handwritten letter is a simple, but powerful gesture to express appreciation for our military's courage, sacrifice and dedication. The letters provide a morale boost, not just to one service member, but often to the entire unit."

Shauna Fleming, founder and CEO of A Million Thanks

"As a founding partner of the Military Spouse Employment Partnership, we celebrate the contributions and sacrifices made by military spouses. They are the backbone of military families. As a spouse of a 20-year Army retiree, that hits home."

Jodi Vickery, EVP and Director of Military Consumer Lending

"We are honored to have received the Distinguished Bank of the Year award as well as the Military Saves Community Impact award. No matter where our clients are stationed or deployed around the world, we strive to provide the best banking solutions and financial advice."

Tom McLean, SVP, Regional Military Executive
