Tinker FCU Helps Nonprofit Honor World War II Veterans
Monday, October 23, 2017 7:00 AM

Oklahoma City-based Tinker Federal Credit Union was recognized recently for partnering with Oklahoma Honor Flights to help the organization honor veterans.

Oklahoma Honor Flights is a nonprofit organization that has worked to transport veterans to Washington, D.C., to visit the memorials built to honor them. Top priority is given to senior veterans, specifically World War II veterans, and those with terminal illnesses. This was the last year for these trips to D.C., as all qualified veterans have already made the trip. They will now turn their attention to contributing to a C130 memorial that will be placed in Midwest City.

TFCU helped sponsor the first honor flight nine years ago and has contributed every year since. Along with helping make these flights possible, TFCU has also donated other items, such as umbrellas, for veterans on the trip to use. 

During a recent TFCU board meeting, Oklahoma Rep. Gary Banz, along with Steve Coleman, chair of the Honor Flight program, recognized the credit union for their work in helping make these flights for veterans a reality.

“As a defense credit union, we have made it our mission to serve those who are serving or have served our country,” said TFCU President and CEO Michael Kloiber. “Recognizing these veterans and helping make these flights a possibility for them is our small way of saying thank you for your sacrifice.”

Tinker Federal Credit Union is the largest credit union in Oklahoma, with $3.7 billion in assets and over 353,000 members.
