At a brief ceremony at the Travis Regional Armed Forces Committee luncheon on March 21, the California Committee for Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve presented the Seven Seals Award to Travis Credit Union.
The prestigious award, named for the heraldry seals of the seven military services, recognizes efforts by citizens, businesses or organizations whose actions have helped reservists in all branches.
“The award was presented to the credit union for meritorious leadership and initiative in support of the men and women, who serve America in the National Guard and Reserve,” said Andrew C. Wiktorowicz, California state chairman of ESGR, in a news release. “These brave men and women perform critical roles and continue to serve around the world to ensure our freedom. All of this would not be possible without the support from employers like Travis Credit Union.”
Patsy Van Ouwerkerk, president and CEO of Travis Credit Union, signed a statement of support for the National Guard and Reserve prior to the award presentation.
“Supporting those that serve and defend our freedom is part of our corporate culture,” Van Ouwerkerk said in the news release. “Now, more than ever, active support for employees who voluntarily participate in our military and their community-based defense force is vital to the nation.”
