NFCU Membership!

NFCU Membership!

Pretty stoked. Found out my grandfather (passed before my birth) was a Navy WW2 Vet. I have NFCU a call and joined! I was granted membership with just his branch and discharge status, but was told they may ask for his DD 214 in the future if they decide to authenticate. Gave me a website where I could gain access to it.

Had no idea I had a vet in the immediate family (lots of cousins and Uncles but no one immediate) and thought I stood no shot of getting in. So stoked.

Welcome!

Always a good idea to have that DD214 ready if they decide to review your account.

Re: NFCU Membership!

Yeah. I’m contacting my Aunt tomorrow to see if she can pull the records for me since I am not technically a next of kin as a grandchild rather than son. NFCU was nice enough to let me know how to go about getting the records.

If your grandfather was discharged right after the war ended you may be able to get them yourself.

Re: NFCU Membership!

Hmm. I will have to check that out tomorrow. Seems like I’ll have to contact her either way to verify some of his pedigree info. All I have right now is DOB, Branch, Name and state of birth

Re: NFCU Membership!

Mailing out my SP180 tonight. Hopefully it contains enough of the information they need to locate his records.

 

Thanks for the assistance!
