Like a jet catapulting off a carrier flight deck to protect the fleet, USAA and the Naval Aviation Museum Foundation (NAMF) are launching a new alliance to serve the financial needs of NAMF members.
The agreement gives thousands of NAMF members access to USAA’s top-rated financial services, including banking, a co-branded credit card, investments and financial planning. NAMF members who meet USAA’s eligibility requirements may also take advantage of USAA’s insurance products.
According to retired U.S. Navy Rear Adm. John Townes, USAA senior vice president for military affairs and former carrier task force commander, USAA’s newest relationship expands the organization’s efforts to be the provider of choice for people who served in the nation’s armed forces and are committed to protecting the heritage of the U.S. military.
“The Naval Aviation Museum Foundation supports the Museum’s mission of preserving and promoting naval aviation history, and USAA is pleased to join forces with them to help serve their members by providing them top-rated financial services products,” said Townes.
Retired U.S. Navy Vice Adm. Gerald Hoewing, President and CEO of the Naval Aviation Museum Foundation, said the alliance between the foundation and USAA is a natural fit.
“USAA’s mission to serve the financial and insurance needs of the military and veterans and their families aligns closely with our continued support of the museum mission to collect and preserve naval aviation history and display the proud legacy of the men and women of the naval services and the airplanes they flew and maintained in defense of the nation,” said Hoewing.
In 2009, USAA opened its membership to veterans who have honorably served and their eligible family members.
Founded in 1966, the Naval Aviation Museum Foundation Inc. is the nonprofit 501(c)(3) educational and fundraising organization that supports the development of the National Naval Aviation Museum. With nearly 10,000 dues-paying members, the Foundation is financially self-sufficient. Through the management of various revenue-generating operations – such as the IMAX® Naval Aviation Memorial Theatre and the Flight Deck Store – 100 percent of all donations are used for the development of the Museum and its associated educational programs.
USAA provides insurance, banking, investment and retirement products and services to 7.8 million members of the U.S. military and their families. Known for its legendary commitment to its members, USAA is consistently recognized for outstanding service, employee well-being and financial strength. USAA membership is open to all who are serving or have honorably served our nation in the U.S. military – and their families.
