You're either eligible or you're not.
USAA and NFCU are in the business of supporting military members very distinct financial needs.
You know if you're a military family member. I'm sorry, but claiming membership through a deceased grandparent who served in WW2 does not make you a military family member. I'm glad I read about people's accounts frozen because they gained membership through a second cousin who served with a different last name.
I earned my eligibilty for both these institutions, as have many others. But to suggest (and I've seen you post this Navy League backdoor on another site too) a donation to the Navy League makes you eligible is an absolute slap in the face to military families. I have no sympathy for people who Navy has frozen their accounts because they get in via a roommate member.
