To all our active duty and veteran military personnel: VyStar Credit Union salutes you. Our organization originally began in 1952 as Jax Navy Federal Credit Union to serve civil service, military employees and their families at Naval Air Station Jacksonville (NAS Jax). And while VyStar now serves anyone who lives or works in 49 counties from North to Central Florida, we still hold true to our military roots.
The VyStar team is grateful to our military service members, as well as their families, for the selfless sacrifices they make for our country and our freedom. We are honored to serve you, and we look forward to continuing to support our troops in any way we can.
Each year, VyStar sponsors, participates in and contributes to more than 20 military-focused events, charities and initiatives. The following are just a few highlights from 2018:
NAS Jax Air Show
VyStar has been a proud sponsor of the annual NAS Jax Air Show—which took place aboard Naval Air Station Jacksonville this October—since 1991. The event showcases the extraordinary talents of the United States Navy’s flight demonstration team, the Blue Angels®, and gives visitors the opportunity to enjoy great food and other family-friendly activities.
USO PathfinderSM Transition Service Center at NAS Jax
During the summer of 2018, VyStar funded the building of the very first USO Pathfinder transition service center in Jacksonville—and in Florida—at our own Naval Air Station Jacksonville (NAS Jax) branch. This new facility will serve as a resource for service members who need assistance when transitioning out of the military and into civilian life.
Military Appreciation Night at Adventure Landing
For the past 10 years, VyStar has been honored to sponsor the USO Military Appreciation Night at Adventure Landing water park. Several thousand military personnel and their family members—some of whom may not be able to afford admission to Adventure Landing, even with the military discount—attend this event each year, receiving one night of free unlimited access to the water park, miniature golf, laser tag and more.
Patriots’ Outpost at THE PLAYERS Championship
For the last three years, VyStar has sponsored and participated in the Patriots’ Outpost at THE PLAYERS Championship, where veterans and their families can go to get free food, refreshments and other giveaways while they watch their favorite golfers compete. We are proud to support THE PLAYERS efforts to offer free or affordable access to the tournament for men and women of the U.S. Armed Services.
Clay County and JAX Chambers of Commerce Military Appreciation Luncheons
An annual tradition, the Military Appreciation Luncheons hosted by the Clay County and JAX Chambers of Commerce honor and celebrate local active duty and retired military personnel. VyStar is privileged to participate alongside the Clay County and JAX Chambers and show our gratitude to our service members for the contributions they make and everything they do to make our lives better.
Other military events/promotions we have recently supported throughout the counties we serve include:
Florida’s first USO PathfinderSM military transition service center opens at VyStar’s NAS Jax branch.
