Military Appreciation Month is a time to honor the brave men and women of our armed forces and thank them for their patriotism and service in defense of our nation.
Their sacrifices, and those of their family members, is a debt that can never be fully repaid, which is why we consider it a great honor at Core Bank to serve their financial needs every day.
We are joined in this endeavor by thousands of community banks nationwide who serve these patriots by adhering to the highest service standards.
Many of our customers take advantage of our bank’s participation in the Department of Veterans Affairs home loan program, for example, to secure attractive rates and generous financing terms toward the purchase or refinance of a home.
As a Small Business Administration lender, Core Bank works with individuals transitioning from military service to civilian life to access special funding for veteran-owned small businesses, entrepreneurship training programs, and contracting opportunities offered through the SBA.
Military Appreciation Month was initially recognized by a resolution in the U.S. Senate in 1999 and traditionally takes place every year throughout the entire month of May, reminding Americans to celebrate this patriotic month that pays tribute to those who have sacrificed so much for our freedom.
Although the entire month is designated to honoring past and present military members and their families, there are several, specific military holidays sprinkled throughout Military Appreciation Month itself, including Loyalty Day, VE Day, Military Spouse Appreciation Day, Mother’s Day, Armed Forces Day and Memorial Day.
We salute the men and women in uniform and their families for their service and sacrifice to help keep America safe and we couldn’t be prouder to help fulfill their banking needs—when you’re in the community and when the call of duty takes you away from home.
