PenFed Membership Charter Now Includes Marine Corps League

ALEXANDRIA, VA--(Marketwire - December 1, 2010) - Pentagon Federal Credit Union (PenFed) announced today that their membership charter now includes the employees and members of the Marine Corps League and Marine Corps League Auxiliary.

PenFed hit a milestone this month by adding its millionth member to its ever growing roster. Therefore this move to diversify their membership charter by adding the Marine Corps League to its list of membership affiliates creates additional opportunities for the credit union to serve others in the military community while stimulating overall growth.

 "PenFed is excited to extend our financial services to the Marine Corps League," says Betsy Henkel, EVP Business Development, PenFed. "The men and women who represent the League are an exceptional group of individuals and PenFed is proud to welcome them into our organization."

The Marine Corps League is the Nation's only congressionally chartered Marine Corps Veterans Organization. Established in 1923 and chartered by Congress in 1937, members of the Marine Corps League help promote the ideals of American freedom and democracy, voluntarily aiding and rendering assistance to all Marines, FMF Corpsmen, former Marines, and FMF Corpsmen and to their widows and orphans.

"We are extremely pleased to bring the Marine Corps League into the Pentagon Federal family so that we are able to extend the services that the credit union has to offer to the members of the League and Auxiliary," stated the Marine Corps League's National Commandant, Vic Voltaggio, and Executive Director, Michael Blum. "This will be a great marriage, and will give our members and employees the opportunity to join this outstanding credit union and take advantage of all PenFed's great programs."
