DALLAS – Resource One Credit Union has celebrated the safe return of one of its own. After more than 10 months of military service, Staff Sergeant Karen Junjak-Ivens, a Motor Transport Chief in Charlie Company 4th Landing Support Battalion who was responsible for Marine and cargo transportation between various airfields and military bases in Iraq, has finally returned home. Officially reacquainted with her Resource One CU family during an all-employee meeting, Junjak-Ivens retained her position as a member service representative and has been busy with refresher training courses on the latest products/policies and procedures. “2004 was a long and difficult year; however, the love and support from my family and co-workers kept me going. I am blessed to be home and healthy”, said Junjak-Ivens. “It’s time to get back to the business of serving my members and providing them with education about our great service and products.” Before she left for Iraq, the Resource One CU team presented Junjak-Ivens with a Resource One banner to display in her barracks as a reminder of her co-workers’ support. Returning home with the banner, which had been signed by hundreds of military personnel stationed with her, Junjak-Ivens presented it to Resource One President/CEO Jim Brisendine. “We at Resource One salute Karen’s efforts in serving in Iraq to protect our liberties and freedom. We welcome her back to the Resource One family”, said Brisendine.
