Navy Fed w/out military affiliation?

Hello all -
My apologies if this has been answered already, but can you apply to Navy Fed without having any military affiliation? Used to be, you could apply to the San Diego Navy League and get in that way. My understanding was that earlier this year that method was discontinued? I have been gardening for a while, and am wondering whether going for a Navy Fed credit card would be a good idea. All 3 scores between 710-720, have Amex Everyday CL $6k, Cap 1 MC CL $4k, Discover CL $10k. I was hoping to add another card, but just not sure what, and thought Navy would be a decent one. Thanks.

Re: Navy Fed w/out military affiliation?

Unless you have a household member, or a very close relative that has military affiliation, there is currently no known way to join.
Chasex3/PenFedx3/NFCUx2/BofA/BMO/AMEX x5(4 revolvers +Platinum)/CapOnex2/DCU/Blispay/Cabelas/BBVA/Fifth Third/Banco de Brazil/BB&T/HSBC/Atira/Commerce Bank/State Farm Visa........I have them all. Except Barclays. They suck. And Sync. They suck worse! And Citi,, because I Have 9,000 Inq.
In the 520-530 range in 12/2015.... Currently EQ747/TU758/EX744
NFCU & PenFed are my best friends!!

In 3/2016 I had a $1800 fully secured CapOne QS. And that was it.. Current CL $247,000 (plus my auto and RV loans)

Unlike Penfed where you dont need affilition to join or apply credit cards, with Navy you have to be a member to apply for credit cards.

I joined last week my only affiliation was my father was in the army back in the 40s I told him that and I was also they did nothing to verify anything with regards to affiliation.
So glad I did they are very easy to deal with and very generous when I comes to giving credit.

I told them I grew up watching G.I. Joe after school but they didn't go for it.
