FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. – Fort Bragg Federal Credit Union employees are showing their support for those serving in Iraq. Through the Companies Adopting Companies Program, sponsored by members of the Fayetteville Chamber of Commerce/ Military Affairs Council and the Braxton Bragg Chapter of AUSA, staffers here have adopted the 18th Soldier Support Group currently stationed in Iraq for a year-long tour. “Our credit union primarily serves those in the Fort Bragg community or those somehow related to the Fort Bragg community,” Fort Bragg FCU President/CEO David Elliott said. “We wanted to find a way to somehow give back to those serving and sacrificing for us. We felt that lending support through packages and letters was a good way to do that.” The 18th Soldier Support Group has been communicating with the credit union on a regular basis, sending pictures that now hang on the walls in the employee section of each branch. “We have received several e-mails and pictures from the group, which has been really beneficial,” said Marketing Director Karen Strickland. “The pictures and letters allow us to relate to the soldiers and put a face and name to those we are supporting.” In addition to e-mails, 14 boxes were sent to the group of approximately 75 soldiers containing much needed items ranging from sweatpants, shampoos, and deodorants, to body wash, candy and socks.
