ALBANY, NY — CAP COM Federal Credit Union is reuniting hearts this Veterans Day with its Reunite Flight program. The program will help active military personnel travel to be with their families when it otherwise might not be possible. This is CAP COM’s newest initiative to recognize and thank active service members for all they do to protect and serve our country.
“What better way to thank our service personnel than with the gift of family. CAP COM is built on the credit union foundation of people helping people and strives to nurture the community in support of children and families. This is one of several new initiatives that CAP COM has been proud to launch this year in an effort give back in new ways,” said Sharon Phillips, CAP COM Federal Credit Union’s VP of Strategic Marketing & Public Relations.
Members of the credit union were able to nominate an active member of the military that they felt was deserving of a Reunite Flight. Of those nominated, a nominating committee consisting of representatives from the VFW, American Legion and West Point chose two deserving recipients. These recipients will receive free, round-trip airfare to visit their family over the next year. Names and photos are included below:

“Thank you to the CAP COM family and the community for allowing me the opportunity to visit my family. Anytime I get to see my family, holiday or not, it is always special. It means so much to me to have such caring individuals give their support to soldiers. We could not do what we do without support from people like you. Thank you,” said Ethan.
