Suitland, Maryland (PRWEB) October 13, 2016
Andrews Federal Credit Union was a sponsor of the 2016 Joint Ball at the Abbaye de Villers, in Villers-la-Ville, Belgium. The Joint Ball, a joint venture by the Air Force and Navy personnel stationed at Supreme Headquarters Allied Powers Europe (SHAPE), is a great example of the two services working together for a common purpose. The event was hosted by Vice Admiral John Christenson, with the theme being “Come Fly with Me”, which highlighted the roll of aviation in the Air Force and the Navy.
The speaker for the evening, Rear Admiral Shoshana Chatfield, spoke about her career of flying Helicopters in the Navy. She stated, “Nothing quite describes the feeling of soaring through the sky, gliding along the clouds with no one around, and of course, a great Navigator to guide you.”
“It is a privilege to be part of such a great community and to be able to provide support towards this great event”, said Andrews Federal Chievres Branch Manager, Joshua Barrett. “This event is not about the sponsors or the speaker, it is about the many Airman, Sailors, Marines and Soldiers that get to take an evening off and have fun, in a beautiful location.”
